PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Another tough CAA match-up is on tap for Delaware on Saturday as they travel to Maine to visit the #23 Black Bears on Saturday.
The Blue Hens are now 4-1 on the season (1-0 in the CAA) and ranked as high as #24 in the country after an impressive come-from-behind victory over then #14 James Madison last weekend, 29-22.
Delaware trailed 19-7 at the half against the Dukes.
“We didn’t play very well in the beginning of the game,” Delaware head coach Dave Brock tells KYW Newsradio. “Made a mistake on the first play (interception), but came out, played great defense and held them to a field goal. Really battled the whole first half. We didn’t play particularly sharp, (but) played well on defense and kind of kept us in the game.”
But Brock says his team turned it around after they emerged from the locker room at the break.
