Widener University will make the brief 63 mile trip to Dover, as the No. 20 Pride renew a rivalry with No. 5 Dover Friday night at Miller Stadium.

Wesley's first ever home night game features a battle of national quarterfinalists from a year ago who will be looking to break in new quarterbacks.

Taking the helm for Wesley is sophomore Joe Callahan, a strong-armed, self-described "pocket passer" who brings a little mobility to his 6'1", 215-pound frame. He takes over for Justin Sottilaire, who led Wesley to the South Region championship game, where they lost to Mary Hardin-Baylor last December.

Widener's changes begin at the head coach position, with Bobby Acosta replacing Isaac Collins, who took the head coaching job at Division II Seton Hill. Acosta served as the offensive coordinator at The College of New Jersey last season, and previously served as Tight Ends coach at Delaware from 2007-2008.

His new quarterback will be redshirt freshman Seth Klein from Wernersville, Pa. Widener's top receiver, All-American Anthony Davis, does return after collecting 64 passes for 1,236 yards and 16 touchdowns last season.

The last time the teams met was in 2008, when Shane McSweeny tossed three touchdown passes in an easy 41-9 victory.

You can hear Wesley and Widener Friday evening beginning with pregame coverage at 5:30pm on 1150AM WDEL, WDEL.com, and the WDEL Mobile App for smartphones.
