NEW YORK (AP) — James Holland ran for 165 yards and two touchdowns and the Colgate defense recorded a record-tying fifth shutout with a 41-0 thrashing of Fordham on Saturday afternoon to clinch the Patriot League title.
Colgate (8-0, 5-0 Patriot League) tied the FCS single-season record with its fifth shutout on the season. South Carolina State accomplished the same feat in 1978. Colgate, which has outscored its opponents 168-3 in the first half of all games this season, has allowed just one touchdown in its last 47 quarters, dating back to Oct. 21, 2017.
The Raiders had 562 yards of offense while limiting Fordham to just 28 yards. Colgate ran for 364 yards while holding the Rams (1-8, 1-3) to a minus-50 yards on the ground. The Raiders had racked up 329 total yards in the first half while holding Fordham to eight. Colgate sacked Tim DeMorat six times.
