The 1950 Fordham Rams football team represented Fordham University during the 1950 college football season. The Rams went 8–1 and scored 174 points while their defense allowed 123 points.[1] Despite an 8-1 record, Fordham finished the season unranked and were left out of any postseason play, although they did get strong consideration from the Gator Bowl.[2][3] Ultimately, a poor strength of schedule—Fordham's opponents combined for a dismal 28–53–4 mark–in what was a weak year for the entire Eastern region and a belief that Fordham wouldn't travel well—Fordham only averaged about 10,000 fans per home game—kept them home during bowl season. Still, their .889 win percentage (the 1937 team had a .933 win percentage while going 7–0–1) is tied for second best in school history.
