The winning touchdown came after Colgate went three-and-out for the only time. Michael Johnson returned the punt to the Delaware 43 and Hurley directed the winning 12-play drive, including two fourth-down conversions. Johnson ran in a 2-point conversion.
Hurley threw for two touchdowns, both to Nick Boyle, completing 25 of 36 for 257 yards with two interceptions.
The Raiders (0-2) fell just short of defeating Delaware for the first time in their six meetings. Jake Melville completed 15 of 25 for 135 yards and ran for 118 yards and a score. Jonah Bowman kicked four field goals.
