Through 3 Quarters
The Florida Atlantic Owls were the heavy favorites here for a reason. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the Fordham Rams as Florida Atlantic lead 28-7. A victory for Fordham would counteract both their recent loss and Florida Atlantic's recent win.
The Owls have yet to string together two consecutive wins, but this may be their chance. For now, all signs point to yes.
