Harvard at Fordham, 4:00PM Eastern (SNY)
Following the Christmas break, the SCGD returns today, taking us to the Bronx for the battle between Tommy Amaker’s Harvard Crimson and the Fordham Rams. Harvard has been sniffing at breaking into the Top 25 the past few weeks, having run off 6 straight victories since losing at Colorado, and boasting a 10-1 overall record on the season. With the meat of the Ivy League season still several weeks from starting, today’s game is one of four remaining non-conference road tests. The Crimson will also have to travel to Rice, Florida Atlantic and UConn, plus a home contest against Boston College before turning their attention to conference play.
Fordham is off to a solid 7-4 start to the season. However, their most notable win to date is a road win over Manhattan. That is offset by a bad road loss to Monmouth and an even worse home loss to Sacred Heart. Today’s game is the second to last non-conference game for the Rams, with only a trip to Siena on Monday before A-10 play starts. This appears to be Harvard’s game to lose today, but Tom Pecora’s Rams should be ready and it would not be a shock if this game is close all the way.
