The Buffalo Bulls have added the Fordham Rams to their 2023 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.
A copy of the football game contract was obtained from the State University of New York at Buffalo via a Freedom of Information Law request.
Buffalo will host Fordham at UB Stadium in Buffalo, N.Y., on September 9, 2023. Buffalo will pay Fordham a guarantee for the game, but the amount was redacted from the contract per New York law.
Buffalo and Fordham first met on the gridiron in 1930 and have squared off a total of three times. In their most recent matchup in 1995, the Bulls defeated the Rams 49-13 to take a 2-1 advantage in the series.
The addition of Fordham tentatively completes Buffalo’s non-conference football schedule for the 2023 season. The Bulls are scheduled to open the season at the Wisconsin Badgers on Sept. 2. UB is also slated to host the Liberty Flames on Sept. 16 and travel to face the Old Dominion Monarchs on Sept. 23 in non-conference action.
Buffalo is the second scheduled non-conference opponent for Fordham for the 2023 season. The Rams are also slated to play at the UAlbany Great Danes on Aug. 26 that season, which is Week Zero.
