NEWARK, Del. — The University of Delaware could do little wrong on both sides of the ball Saturday afternoon as the No. 5 ranked Blue Hens piled up 589 yards of total offense and held Towson to just eight first downs on the way to a 48-0 Colonial Athletic Association rout before an appreciative Homecoming crowd of 21,603 at Delaware Stadium.
The Blue Hens (8-1, 6-0 CAA), who were coming off their first loss of the season back on Oct. 23 and a bye week last Saturday, stormed back in stunning fashion as All-American candidate Pat Devlin completed 29 of 38 passes for 318 yards and one touchdown while running for another score, Nihja White was one of 10 UD players to catch a pass and finished with nine receptions for 108 yards and one touchdown, Leon Jackson scored on a 63-yard run, and Andrew Pierce scored two touchdowns and went over 1,000 yards for the season.
Towson (1-8, 0-6 CAA), which lost its seventh straight game, played without dual-threat quarterback Chris Hart who was suspended on Friday due to a violation of team runs. With Hart gone, the Tigers managed just 158 total yards and eight first downs and punted 10 times. The Tigers crossed midfield just twice the entire day and never got closer than the Delaware 34-yard line.
The Blue Hens, who remained in a tie for first place in the CAA standings with William & Mary with a 5-1 league mark, reached the eight-victory mark with the win.
