NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Sam Ajala set a school record with 282 yards receiving, guiding a high-powered Fordham offense to a 52-31 win over Yale Saturday.
The Rams improved to 8-0 for the first time in school history with the victory over Yale (3-2).
The Fordham offense ignited early as Michael Nebrich found Ajala with a 68-yard touchdown pass on the second play of the opening drive. A 17-yard touchdown run from Henry Furman tied the game at 7-7 but the Rams responded with 17 unanswered points, highlighted by two more touchdown passes from Nebrich to Ajala.
Ajala tied another school record, catching four touchdown passes. Nebrich broke a career-high mark set last week against Georgetown with 421 yards passing against Yale.
Yale was hurt by four turnovers, and 35 second-half points from Fordham kept the Bulldogs from closing the deficit.
