For the first time ever, Delaware State will play host to its in-state FCS rival in Dover.
The Delaware football team — on April 10 — is expected to battle the Hornets at Alumni Stadium, according to the Delaware News.
It will be the 10th all-time meeting between the programs. Each of the previous contests, including the postseason, has been played in Newark.
“It’s great for DSU and the Hornets to compete against the University of Delaware at our Alumni Stadium home for the first time in the history of the series,” said Dr. Scott Gines, DSU’s athletic director. “With the women’s and men’s basketball home games against the Blue Hens this December, our teams will be hosting their First State rivals in three consecutive showcase events in a four-month period.”
The Hornets and Blue Hens have met eight times since 2009, with Delaware winning each time. The Hornets, who will start its spring season in 2021, are looking for their first victory in the series.
