We break down the Fordham game – and we give our fearless prediction below the flip.

Fordham’s incredible squad gives a tantalizing glimpse as to what Patriot League football teams might look like once four seasons of scholarship athletes come into the program.

In their first year of eligibility for the Patriot League title since adopting conventional scholarships in football, Fordham has been drilling opponents, scoring more than 40 points per game in their six wins.

They’re doing so with scholarship athletes, of course – but with scholarship athletes that are seniors, too, including two very, very important transfers from UConn.

Fordham’s strategy has been a slow payoff, but a great one so far, giving the Rams a squad that is among the top offenses in all of FCS.

That’s what Lehigh is up against this weekend.

It was a real Yankee crowd in the Bronx this afternoon – a sellout, overflow Bronx crowd of over 7,800.

Without a Yankee postseason to worry about, the nationally-ranked Fordham Rams had something they hadn’t had on an October afternoon in a very long time: the undivided sports attention of the local area, playing against another Top 25 team on national television.

When the calls didn’t go the Rams’ way, the fans stood up the same way they might in New Yankee Stadium, arguing the call.  And when a play didn’t have yellow laundry on the field, indeed, the “Bronx Cheer” the Borough made famous did indeed ripple through the crowd.

Not that Fordham needed help from the refs.

The Rams may have had some doubters going into this weekend with their 5-0 record, but there sure aren’t any more after a resounding, offensive clinic that made Lehigh pay desperately for two turnovers and ultimately had Fordham go to 6-0 with a 52-34 victory.

We break down the Fordham game – and we give our fearless prediction below the flip.

Though this game doesn’t officially count towards the Patriot League standings, make no mistake about how big this game is for both programs.

Look no further than the ticket sales for this game.

Fordham’s Jack Coffey field is sold out, all 7,000 seats, and even on StubHub.com this game is a hot ticket, with no tickets available as of right now.  (Check back if you still need tickets!)

A sold-out, 7,000 seat venue for a meaningful football game is what FCS football is all about, and whatever happens it’s going to be a fantastic ambassador for Patriot League football broadcast across the country on CBS Sports Network.
