New York, NY (Sports Network) - After recording the second-best turnaround in
the FCS last season, Fordham University will play six home games as part of a
12-game 2013 schedule announced Tuesday.
Fordham improved by five wins last season to finish with a 6-5 record in coach
Joe Moorhead's first year with the Rams.
Their home games at Jack Coffey Field will be against Rhode Island (Aug. 29),
Villanova (Sept. 7), Columbia (Sept. 21), Lehigh (Oct. 5), Holy Cross (Nov. 2)
and Bucknell (Nov. 9).
In playing their first-ever 12-game regular-season schedule, the Rams will
visit an FBS opponent - Temple on Sept. 14 - for the third straight season.
Fordham, in its fourth season of offering football scholarships, is ineligible
for the Patriot League until 2014. The rest of the league began offering
scholarships this year.
