FCS Championship, Eastern Washington Vs. Delaware: Blue Hens Strike First Behind Pat Devlin

The Eastern Washington Eagles got the ball first to open the FCS Championship and looked poised to start-off on the wrong foot. A first down, a 16-yard strike from quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell and the Eagles were in business. It wasn’t to be, however, as Eastern was forced to punt, giving the ball to the Delaware Blue Hens and dynamic quarterback Pat Devlin.

Taking the ball at their own 20-yard line, Delaware strung together a drive, mixing the run and pass to gash the Eagles as they moved down the field with precision. Andrew Pierce, the perfect compliment to Devlin’s abilities, finished the drive off with a two-yard plunge into the end zone. Devlin finished the drive 4-5 for 34 yards. Pierce added 24 yards on the ground and Devlin scrambled for another 21.

The Blue Hens have the early lead with the FCS Championship on the line, 6-0. Eastern did get a small victory, blocking the extra point.
