The Blue Hen football team sees its NCAA playoff run come to a screeching halt. 

The Hens fall in the FCS national semifinals with a 33-3 loss to top-seed South Dakota State University on the road – ending their quest to reach the championship game for the first time since 2010.

The Jackrabbits harassed the UD offense all game long, limiting Delaware to 216 yards while registering 7 sacks.  Delaware’s only points came on a first quarter field goal

On the other side of the ball, UD’s defense yielded 354 yards – well above the 233 per game it had allowed coming into the contest.

Delaware ends its COVID-delayed spring season with a 7-1 record.
