Fordham 16, Rhode Island 0

NEW YORK (AP) -- John Skelton threw touchdown passes of 87 and 50 yards to lead Fordham to a 16-0 victory over Rhode Island on Sunday.

Skelton finished 14-for-26 for 267 yards with one interception. Xavier Martin led the Rams with 169 yards on 29 carries.

Jason Caldwell's 87-yard touchdown catch midway through the second quarter made it 10-0 and Asa Lucas went 50 yards with 7:12 left in the game.

Derek Cassidy was 25-for-41 for 200 yards for Rhode Island.

The first Sunday game in Fordham history was necessary because rain and wind on Saturday forced a postponement.
