Price Wilson passed for 380 yards and two touchdowns and Alfred Dorbor ran for 116 yards and two scores on only 11 carries for the Bulldogs (5-2), who scored nine points in the final 1:50 of the game.
Dorbor scored on a 2-yard run to cap a 15-play, 99-yard drive to pull the Bulldogs within 41-39, but a failed two-point try left them trailing. Bryant's defense forced a three-and-out to set up a quick 10-play, 67-yard drive with Wilson connecting on his last seven passes to position Samperi for his game-winning kick. Wilson topped 5,000 career passing yards.
Tim DeMorat tossed four touchdown passes and Tyriek Hopkins ran for 176 yards and a score to help Fordham take a 41-33 lead in the Rams' final nonconference game of the season. DeMorat, coming off Patriot League freshman-of-the-week honors in Fordham's 43-14 win over Lehigh last Saturday when he passed for two scores and a freshman school-record 299 yards, completed 19 of 28 passes against the Bulldogs (5-2) for 228 yards. Austin Longi had 10 catches for 137 yards and two TDs.
Bryant's Tom Kennedy finished with 13 catches for 221 yards, while Vincent Nisivoccia hauled in nine passes for 104 yards and two TDs.
