Big Red vs. The Bronx: Previewing Fordham-Nebraska | The I-80 Preview

September 02, 2021

Nebraska welcomes an unfamiliar foe this weekend to Lincoln––Fordham. The Rams represent one of my favorite quirks of college football.

Much of the beauty of college football is that most of it happens outside of the major media centers of the United States. It’s played there, too, but most of the sports’ power programs exist outside of the bright lights of our biggest cities.

Not Fordham. It’s right there in the Bronx. New York City’s team with the most wins since 2012 as the Rams’ game notes pointed out last April.

Aside from the relative oddity of real city football, Nebraska has some impressing to do on Saturday, if that’s even possible. Winning impressively is sort of the baseline expectation in a game such as this, but Fordham will bring one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the FCS ranks, a top-flight linebacker and a pass-first approach to Lincoln on Saturday.

How does Nebraska win this game? We get into that, but, given a projected five-touchdown difference between the teams, spend more time on how Nebraska wins more games in general in this week episode of the I-80 Preview Podcast.

The I-80 Preview will have new episodes each week during football season. You can listen to the new episode below or, better yet, subscribe via Apple Podcasts, Spotify or your preferred pod purveyor.
