Associated Press

LORETTO, Pa. -- Michael Nebrich threw three touchdowns passes, including two in the fourth quarter, and Fordham pulled away from Saint Francis for a 38-20 win Saturday.

The Rams (5-0) set the pace early, as Jorge Solano returned the opening kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown. A 10-yard touchdown pass from Nebrich to Dan Light gave the Rams a 14-0 lead by the end of the first quarter.

Saint Francis (1-3) came back to take a brief 20-17 lead on a 71-yard touchdown run by Kyle Harbridge. Harbridge accounted for all of the Red Flash scores, logging three touchdowns while rushing for a season-high 291 yards.

The Rams regained the lead with a 23-yard touchdown pass from Nebrich to Tebucky Jones and pulled away with two more fourth-quarter scores.

The game was the second-ever meeting between the schools and marked the first time Saint Francis hosted a non-conference team ranked in the FCS.
