The University of Delaware athletic department has announced the start times for Blue Hen football home games this fall. Fans will have six opportunities to see the Blue Hens play at Delaware Stadium, including four matchups against CAA opponents.
Head Coach Ryan Carty will coach his first game inside Delaware Stadium on Sept. 10 against Delaware State. Kickoff for the home opener is set for 6 p.m. as the Blue Hens and Hornets will renew the Route 1 Rivalry.
Two weeks later, UD will again play under the lights when it hosts Hampton, which is entering its inaugural season in the CAA, on Sept. 24. It will be the first-ever matchup between the two programs.
The Blue Hens will welcome Towson for the first time since 2018 when the Tigers visit Newark for a 3 p.m. kickoff on Oct. 1. The game will be part of Delaware's Parents and Family Weekend as, in addition to the football game, there will be a variety of campus festivities for UD students and their families.
Delaware will celebrate Homecoming on Oct. 22 when the Blue Hens step out of CAA play to host Morgan State in a 3 p.m. matchup. It will be the fourth time in school history, and the first time since 1984, that the two programs have met as UD is 3-0-1 against the Bears.
The Blue and Gold will open up a two-game homestand on Nov. 5 when it welcomes another new conference member in Monmouth to Delaware Stadium. Kickoff against the Hawks is scheduled for 1 p.m. The only previous matchup between the two programs came in 2007, a 42-7 UD victory.
The Blue Hens will recognize its senior class on Nov. 12 when it hosts Richmond for a 1 p.m. CAA contest to close out the home slate.
