NEWARK, Del.   --  Senior quarterback Trevor Sasek, who led the University of Delaware football squad to a thrilling 32-31 comeback win over Towson in his first start of the season last Saturday, will get the starting nod again this Saturday (Nov. 9) as the No. 15 Blue Hens host No. 23 William & Mary in a key Colonial Athletic Association clash at Delaware Stadium.


Delaware head coach Dave Brock, who has led the Blue Hens to a 7-2 record, a current second place showing in the league standings, and three straight wins heading into the contest, made the announcement Friday afternoon at the weekly Blue Hen Touchdown Club Luncheon.

Brock also said that junior Trent Hurley, who started for the Blue Hens in the first eight games of the season before being sidelined prior to the Towson game with an upper body injury, will be available to play vs. the Tribe (6-3, 3-2 CAA).

A season-high crowd nearing 20,000 is expected for Parents and Family Weekend but plenty of great seats remain for the 3 p.m. contest. Tickets can be purchased at the Bob Carpenter Center Box Office, by phone at 302-831-2257, and online at www.bluehens.com. Tickets will also be available the day of the game.
