NEW YORK -- Mike Nebrich threw for a school record 524 yards to lead Fordham to a 32-30 come-from-behind win over Holy Cross Saturday.
Trailing 23-14 at the half, Fordham came charging back, amassing 700 total yards, also a school record. The Rams, now 9-0 for the first time in school history, trailed 23-7 in the second quarter, their largest deficit this year. Fordham still had to hold on for the win as Holy Cross (3-7, 1/3 Patriot League), down 32-23, tightened the gap on a Peter Pujals-to-Nate Stanley pass to trail by two, 32-30, with 1:39 remaining. The ensuing onside kick failed.
Sam Ajala was Nebrich's main target, pulling in 12 passes for 189 yards. Tebucky Jones had 6 catches for 120 yards. Carlton Koonce added to the offensive explosion, rushing for 146 yards on 28 carries.
Pujals passed for 238 yards for Holy Cross.
