For another week, the Blue Hens are left off the bracket. I am stuck in the middle on this one, because I did not think they would play Towson that well, but I also thought that after a big win, they might sneak into the play-in round. Apparently not, as Towson has held their ground there (barely) and Old Dominion has themselves a home game (Maine, JMU, and UNH are the other 3 CAA schools in the bracket). 5 conference foes in this and we play none of them in the final two games. Delaware is going to need some help from somewhere to get back in the bracket.

Feels good to wake up after a win. Even better knowing that we have two weeks to enjoy it! Here are some links from Delaware Online this morning.

Crazy amount of scoring to start off this game, and insane kickoff returns for a bad weather game in Towson, followed by a more defensive second half as the Hens fought hard against the Tigers for the victory. Here's the rundown:
- Feisty Teams - Apparently, the Towson bench came about two-thirds of the way across the field towards the Delaware bench and tried to start something up, with the coaches and officials breaking it up before it gets out of hand.
- Quick Start - Michael Johnson gets things started off right with a huge return to the Towson 47-yard line. A 14-yard run gained the Hens a first down right off the bat, but then Donnelly gets sacked and turns the ball over to the Tigers around midfield. A few plays later, Terrance West runs 46 yards for a Tigers touchdown and Towson goes up 7-0 with 12:10 left in the first quarter.
Someone please show up today for the Hens. Delaware travels to take on Towson, who may just be the best team the Hens face this season. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00PM. All of the game notes and the flipcard are available after the jump:
