Bronx, N.Y. (November 15, 2014) – When head coach Joe Moorhead took over at Fordham he laid out some ground rules for his Rams, including the pronouncement that hats are to be removed whenever a players enters a building. But Moorhead waived that rule on Saturday afternoon but only because the hats that he allowed read “Patriot League Champions” as Fordham knocked off Georgetown, 52-7, on Jack Coffey Field to complete an undefeated Patriot League season and clinch the outright league title.
With the win, Fordham’s ninth straight, the #7/8 Rams improve to 10-1 overall, 6-0 in the Patriot League, while Georgetown falls to 2-8 overall, 0-5 in the conference.
The Patriot League title is Fordham’s third, the first since 2007, and the Rams become the first team to go 6-0 in conference play since Lehigh was 7-0 in 2003.
The win also kept Fordham’s home field winning streak intact, which now stands at 13, tied with Coastal Carolina for the second longest active home winning streak in the NCAA FCS (North Dakota has a 20-game active streak).
