Associated Press

EASTON, Pa. -- Ross Scheuerman rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns to lead Lafayette to a 27-14 win over Fordham on Saturday.

After Peter Maetzold's 34-yard touchdown pass to Brian Wetzel cut Lafayette's lead to 10-7 with 10:38 remaining in the first half, the Leopards (4-6, 3-1 Patriot League) rattled off 17 straight points, including a pair of 2-yard touchdown runs by Scheuerman, to put the game out of reach.

Lafayette rushed 245 yards as a team, averaging six yards per carry and dominated the time of possession, holding the ball for nearly 35 minutes.

Fordham (10-1) came into the game averaging 39.1 points per game but was held to a season-low 14 points thanks, in large part, to its five turnovers. The Rams have now committed 10 turnovers in their last two games.

Drew Reed, who completed 17 of 32 passes for 239 yards and one TD, threw four interceptions.
