Thousands of Fordham football faithful took to West Point last weekend expecting to see hard-hitting action. Little did they know that the hardest hit would come from Mother Nature, who dumped at least six inches of October snow on the Hudson Valley.
Despite the weather, members of the Fordham community who attended the weekend's festivities - which included self-guided tours of the Army Sports Hall of Fame, a gala dinner on Friday night with West Point alumni and tailgate party on Saturday morning - made the most of the unique experiences.
These images capture the wide array of events available to fans who traveled to support the team.
