Blue Hens to Host Saint Francis (Pa.) in FCS Championship First Round

The University of Delaware football team's season will continue as the Blue Hens earned an at-large bid in to the 2022 FCS Playoffs. The Blue Hens will host Saint Francis (Pa.) on Saturday, Nov. 26, at Delaware Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 2 p.m. and the game will be aired on ESPN+.

The Blue Hens are in the playoffs for the first time since the 2020-21 Spring season when they advanced to the FCS Semifinals with a home win over Sacred Heard (19-10) and a road victory over No. 4 Jacksonville State (20-14).

Delaware and Saint Francis have met just one time previously when the Red Flash visited Newark for the 2021 home opener. The Blue Hens came away with a 27-10 victory.

Tickets for the general public will go on sale at 5 p.m., Monday, Nov. 21.

The winner of Saturday's first-round game will travel to No. 1 overall seed South Dakota State for a second-round matchup on Saturday, Dec. 3.
