Larry Dixon tied a career high with three touchdowns on 158 yards to become the fourth player in school history with 3,000 yards rushing as Army came back to beat Fordham 42-31 on Saturday.

Terry Baggett added 52 yards rushing and a score, and quarterback A.J. Schurr ran for 70 yards off the bench for the Black Knights (4-7), who topped Fordham for the fourth time in four meetings.

Mike Nebrich was 27 for 38 for 352 yards, three scores, and an interception for the Rams (10-2). Brian Wetzel added 193 receiving yards on 12 catches, including a 65-yard touchdown.

In the teams' last meeting three years ago, Army cruised 55-0 in a freak October blizzard that had fans evacuating by halftime. It would be closer this time, but the Black Knights never trailed after taking a 14-10 lead in the final seconds of the first half.
