The Blue Hens went 7-1, 4-0 in Colonial Athletic Association play. Head coach Danny Rocco led the Blue Hens into the FCS Playoffs, where they defeated Sacred Heart, 19-10, and Jacksonville State, 20-14. Then, in the national semifinals, the Blue Hens fell to South Dakota State, 33-3.
The Blue Hens are led by running back Dejoun Lee, who is a nominee for the Walter Payton Award, given to the best offensive player in FCS. Lee was a finalist for that honor last season, as he also earned CAA Offensive Player of the Year honors and Second Team All-American honors. He rushed for 564 yards and six touchdowns. Lee also added 16 receptions for 119 receiving yards.
The Blue Hens open the season on Sept. 2 at Maine. That game doubles as the CAA opener for both teams. After that, Delaware hosts Saint Francis (PA) on Sept. 11, followed by a road trip to Rutgers on Sept. 18. Then, it’s back to see a play where the blue hens host Albany on Oct. 2.
