Fordham (4-1, 1-0) rambled to a 17-0 lead with three scores in the second quarter.
Holy Cross (2-3, 0-1) rallied with a couple of quick strikes - driving for a field goal in the final seconds of the first half, and opening the second with a 74-yard TD strike from Peter Pujals to Jake Wieczorek, closing to 17-9.
But Fordham stormed back with an 8-yard TD from Nebrich to Dan Light. On the next possession, Chase Edmonds (26 carries, 142 yards) put the Rams at the 4 with a 33-yard gainer. On the next play, Nebrich faked the handoff and ran it in.
