Fordham 34, Cornell 27

BRONX, N.Y. -- Carlton Koonce ran for two touchdowns to help Fordham overcome Cornell quarterback Jeff Mathews' 489 passing yards in a 34-27 win Saturday.

Koonce picked up 176 yards on 31 rushes, including touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters. His ground work was accentuated by the Fordham (2-1) passing game, led by Ryan Higgins 281 yards and two touchdowns on 19-of-26 passing. Brian Wetzel pulled in eight of those passes for 153 yards and a score.

Cornell trailed 7-6 at the half, but scored four touchdowns in the second half to overcome the deficit.

Mathews was 38-of-56 passing, throwing three touchdown strikes and running for another. Three different Cornell (0-1) receivers pulled in 10-plus passes, led by 13 catches, 181 yards and a touchdown by Grant Gellatly and 10 catches, 177 yards and a score for Luke Tasker.
