BRONX, N.Y. (AP) — Kevin Anderson threw for three touchdowns and D’Angelo Palladino ran for three more as Fordham beat Lehigh 45-35 on Saturday.
Anderson had 244 yards passing for the Rams (3-6, 2-2 Patriot League).
Palladino — the former Ironton All-Ohio running back — ran for a school-record 297 yards. Isaiah Searight had 139 yards and two scores receiving.
The Rams scored early and never trailed, beginning with Anderson’s 15-yard touchdown pass to Noah Nix to cap the game’s first drive. Anderson connected with Searight midway through the second quarter and the teams were at 14-all by halftime.
The back-and-forth scoring continued in the second half and a 29-yard Andrew Mevis field goal pushed Fordham to 31-21 with 13:55 to play.
Following Lehigh’s final score — which closed it to 38-35 with 3:18 left — the Mountain Hawks (2-6, 2-1) tried onside kick, which was recovered by Fordham. Three plays later, Palladino took it 48 yards for another touchdown, sealing the win.
