PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Delaware Blue Hens will look to go 2-0 under new head coach Dave Brock on Saturday as they host First State rival Delaware State.
Delaware opened the season with a 51-35 victory over visiting Jacksonville on Thursday night. The Blue Hens overcame a 14-0 early deficit and four turnovers, rolled up 611 yards of offense and held the Dolphins to -37 yards rushing in the win.
“I think overall, there are a lot of lessons learned in that game, certainly a lot of teachable moments,” Brock tells KYW Newsradio. “I thought our pace on offense was good. I thought we were able to attack and kind of play how we wanted and be controlled. Defensively, we really put them behind the eight-ball there in the beginning, (but) had a couple of turnovers deep in our own territory. The reality of those situations are you still want to come away with three points, not seven, which we weren’t able to do. So that’s a good learning experience. Once we got on track and really stopped beating ourselves, more or less, than I think we did a pretty good job of controlling it.”
