There was a different vibe in week six at Jack Coffey Field than there was in week two. Week two felt like old Fordham football, a team hoping to compete and play Villanova close. A month later, we could tell Fordham football was entering a new era.
Fordham Football remains unbeaten and after defeating 10th ranked Lehigh for just the third time in school history, the Rams become a Top 10 team in their own right. On this edition of Monday Night Quarterback, Mike Watts and Nick Logerfo talk to Head Coach Joe Moorhead in his weekly spot, quarterbacks coach Andrew Breiner, wide receiver Sam Ajala and safety Levon Williams.
Coach Moorhead talks the guys through some of the key plays and nuances of the Lehigh victory. In the X's and O's segment, QB coach Andrew Breiner discusses what Michael Nebrich does to be so successful this season.
Fordham (6-0) and Lehigh (4-1) seemed nearly even through 29 minutes and 40 seconds. A 40-yard touchdown to Sam Ajala with 13 seconds left in the first half proved to be a turning point, as the Rams outguned the Mountain Hawks down the stretch to extend their unbeaten start.
DJ Sixmith and NIck Logerfo talk to Fordham Head Football Coach Joe Moorhead about the Rams being 5-0 for the first time since 1988. They also break down the 38-20 comeback victory over St. Francis and key plays in that win like Jorge Solano's opening kick-return touchdown. Coach Moorhead also talks about rising to number 13 in the rankings and previews the matchup against 10th ranked Lehigh.
As the clock ticked to zero, the scoreboard read 52-7, a resounding victory for Fordham to keeping them undefeated for the season. However, just a half before, the Rams went into the locker room up just 10-0 and having blown an opportunity to score right before the half. Coach Joe Moorhead said the offense needed to come out fast in the second half, and they did.

The last time Fordham beat Villanova, Warren G. Harding was the president of the United States. The Rams snapped a 93 year losing streak to the Wildcats with an emotional 27-24 win over the eighth best team in the FCS. The win is hands down the biggest during the short two year tenure of head coach Joe Moorehead and more importantly keeps the Maroon and White undefeated at 2-0.
