The Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens and Jacksonville State Gamecocks face off on Sunday in an FCS playoff game at Burgess Snow Field
The Delaware Fightin Blue Hens come into thsi game with a 6-0 record overall and their defense has been really strong so far this season. In the last game in the playoffs, they faced off with Sacred Heart and they were able to come away with a 19-10 victory. At times the Fightin’ Blue Hens offense has been an issue and they need to find a way to get the offense going early in this game. Under center for Delware Nolan Henderson will get hte start in this game and in the last game he threw for 113 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. In this game, Delaware is going to need the defense to step up in a big way.
On the other side of this matchup is the Jacksonville State Gamecocks who have won three games in a row. .The last game was a playoff matchup against Davidson, and Delaware had no issue coming away with te 49-18 victory. Under center, Jacksonville State is led by Zion Webb and in the last game he threw for 239 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. The team also had three running backs who each rushed for at least 60 yards. In this game, Jacksonville State is going to need to find a way to have success against a very good defense. If the offense turns over the ball, Jacksonville State is going to have issues coming away with the victory.
Delaware has a strong defense and that is going to be the difference in this game as they get the job done. Jacksonville State is going to struggle to score and Delaware will cover this spread. In terms of the total I expect this game is going to be very low scoring and the under is going to cash with ease.
