Delaware takes control late, beats Lafayette 24-6

EASTON, Pa. (AP) Thomas Jefferson rushed for 124 yards and one touchdown and Jalen Randolph added 101 yards rushing as Delaware took control in the fourth quarter to beat Lafayette 24-6 on Saturday night.

Trailing 6-3 late in the third quarter, Delaware (2-0) scored 21 unanswered points to post its 13th straight win over Lafayette (1-1).

Jacob Bissell kicked field goals of 27 and 20-yards to give Lafayette a 6-3 lead. That held up until Jefferson scored from the 16 to catapult the Blue Hens to their first lead with 49 seconds left in the third period.

The Delaware defense shut down the Leopards in the fourth quarter, forcing two punts and grabbing an interception. Lafayette was limited to 189 total yards. Much of it came from the arm of Drew Reed who threw for 111 yards, but he was intercepted twice.
