NEW YORK -- Michael Nebrich threw for four touchdowns, completing 17 of 25 pass attempts for 267 yards, to lead the Fordham Rams to a 51-26 victory over the Rhode Island Rams Thursday night.

Nebrich's longest was a 64 yard completion to Sam Ajala for a touchdown.

Ajala and Brian Wetzel had two touchdown catches each. Ajala totaled 112 yards on 4 receptions. Wetzel caught seven for 90 yards. Dan Light accounted for another 50 yards on two catches.

The Fordham Rams jumped out to a 24-6 lead at the half. Rhode Island closed the gap to 24-12 in the third quarter on the running of Robbie Delgado, who had 113 yards on 21 carries. Fordham's J.Q.
