Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens (5-0)


No. 7 Delaware beats 10th-ranked Villanova for CAA title

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Nolan Henderson threw two touchdown passes, and No. 7 Delaware beat rival and 10th-ranked Villanova 27-20 on Saturday, snapping an eight-game losing streak to the Wildcats and winning the Colonial Athletic Association season title.

The Blue Hens (5-0, 4-0) clinched one of 10 automatic bids into the FCS playoffs while Villanova (2-2, 2-2) most likely ends it season. The Division I Football Championship Committee will release the 16-team playoff bracket on Sunday.

The Wildcats had possession at their 23 with 1:08 to play, but Nijuel Hill intercepted Daniel Smith's overthrown ball on first down to seal it. Villanova had committed only one turnover this season and had gone four straight games against Delaware without one.
