In Dover, Del., Mitchell Ward kicked a 26-yard field goal as time expired to lift Delaware State in a come-from-behind victory over Howard, 22-20, on Saturday.

Down 20-13, Cole Murphy connected with Milton Williams on a 33-yard touchdown pass to pull Delaware State (4-5, 4-2 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) within one with 1:38 remaining. The Hornets recovered the ensuing onside kick, and Murphy led a nine-play drive to set up Ward’s winning kick.

The Bison (3-6, 2-4) opened the fourth quarter with a 13 minute, 99-yard drive capped by a four-yard touchdown run by Anthony Philyaw.

DELAWARE 32, TOWSON 31: At United Stadium, Trevor Sasek tossed his third touchdown with 19 seconds remaining to lift the Fightin’ Blue Hens to a stunning victory over the host Tigers (8-2, 4-2 Colonial Athletic). Sasek’s three-yard connection with wide receiver Rob Jones capped a fourth quarter in which Delaware (outscored 7-2, 4-1) Towson 22-3. It spoiled an incredible day by Tigers running back Terrance West, who rushed 29 times for 206 yards and a pair of scores.

LAFAYETTE 45, GEORGETOWN 27: In Washington, Drew Reed connected with four different receivers for touchdowns as the visiting Leopards defeated the Hoyas. Matt Smalley added a school-record 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

Reed was a sparkling 18 of 24 for 275 yards with scoring strikes of 36, 10, two and five yards to Demetrius Dixon, Mike Duncan, Pat Creahan and Mark Ross for Lafayette (3-5, 3-0 Patriot). Kyle Nolan passed for two touchdowns — both to Daniel Sprotte — and ran for another for Georgetown (1-8, 0-3).
