Army Fordham game

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Looking ahead to another great season, 2017 looks like it could be a special year.
Bleacher Report projects the 2017 top rushing offenses. They chalk Army up for #1. Not everyone will agree with that, but not everyone likes Army or follows their year to year roster strength.

Army opens up on Friday Sept. 1, hosting the Fordham Rams in a rare Michie Stadium night game.

Army felt the wrath of Fordham two years ago, getting the ram's horns in their 2015 night game at Michie. The recent series has been tight:  a 2-1 edge for Army since 2011, the teams have split the last two games.

A quick glance at the Fordham roster shows that Fordham returns perennial All America running back Chase Edmonds (250 all-purpose yards in the 2015 game) as well as QB Kevin Anderson (330 all-purpose yards in the last meeting). Anderson won the 2015 duel - luckily our QB comes back too, Bradshaw had 250 all purpose yards in that 2015 loss.

It's been a good 8 years since Fordham recommitted to their football program and just look at the good they have done. They have participated in the last three FCS playoffs going 2-3 in those games. 
Fordham has done a lot in the last 8 years to re-emphasize football - a look at recent results shows how that re-emphasis has paid off for them. 
Since going 1-10 in 2011 Fordham has simply gone 58-18 with three FCS playoff appearances.

Fordham is ranked FCS # 22 in the STATS FCS top 25.
