VIDEO: UD's Brock says Hens need to focus on Tribe
Delaware football coach Dave Brock says Saturday's stunning comeback win over 7th ranked Towson was exciting...but they have to turn their attention quickly to William and Mary, this week's opponent.
Brock said the victory on Saturday was a great program win and he was thrilled with how his players responded.
Delaware scored 15 points in the final 48 seconds to beat Towson 32-31. Quarterback Trevor Sasek, starting in place of the injured Trent Hurley, was named the CAA offensive player of the week, after connecting on 33 of 46 passes for 330 yards and three touchdowns, including two scores and the game-winning two point conversion with 19 seconds left.
Delaware moved up 6 spots to number 15 in the country this week with the win...William and Mary moved into the top 25 at number 23 after the Tribe blanked New Hampshire, 17-0.
Brock wouldn't say who will start at quarterback this Saturday, saying he would see how Hurley rebounds from an upper body injury...it also depends on whether he practices this week.
Brock says William and Mary presents a stiff challenge, with one of the top defenses in the CAA and the country, with a a dominating defensive front and an efficient offense, especially in the red zone.
Brock says William and Mary is a team that has a distinct personality that doesn't deviate from what it does best...and that's to use a power running game on offense but depending more to win games with special teams and defense.
Saturday's game is a 3pm kickoff at Delaware Stadium.
