Fordham stays undefeated with 52-31 win over Yale

Sam Ajala set a school record with 282 yards receiving, guiding
a high-powered Fordham offense to a 52-31 win over Yale
Saturday.

The Rams improved to 8-0 for the first time in school history
with the victory over Yale (3-2).

The Fordham offense ignited early as Michael Nebrich found Ajala
with a 68-yard touchdown pass on the second play of the opening
drive. A 17-yard touchdown run from Henry Furman tied the game at
7-7 but the Rams responded with 17 unanswered points, highlighted
by two more touchdown passes from Nebrich to Ajala.

Ajala tied another school record, catching four touchdown
passes. Nebrich broke a career-high mark set last week against
Georgetown with 421 yards passing against Yale.

Yale was hurt by four turnovers, and 35 second-half points from
Fordham kept the Bulldogs from closing the deficit.

Candler Rich rushed for career-high 159 yards and a touchdown to
lead Yale.
