College Football: Small College Round-Up; Del Val Goes for 5-0
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (CBS) – In small college action this weekend, Division III Delaware Valley College puts its 4-0 record on the line Saturday as they host 1-3 Stevenson.
The Aggies are coming off a 50-7 throttling of FDU-Florham and head coach Jim Clements says this match-up will be interesting because this is the first season Stevenson has fielded a football team.
“They are a very young football team, they’ve got a lot of skilled players. They average over 30 points a game on offense, they’ve been struggling as of late on defense, but we are excited for the challenge and we can’t wait to get going,” Clements said.

Delaware Valley is about as stingy as they come when it comes to scoring defense. Opponents average just a shade over 11 points a game against Del Val.
The Aggies’ success has not gone unnoticed as they are now ranked as high as 16th in the national DIII polls.
