The jury is still out on both of these teams, but I do lean toward the Fordham Rams because they have shown more punch on the offensive side up to this point. The Abilene Christian Wildcats can be a little slow pace wise, and they're not a team built to come back from decent sized deficits. If Fordham can hit some shots from the outside and take control of this game at any point, Abilene Christian will be in trouble. Toss up game, give me Fordham, the team with slightly more firepower.
