Rhode Island on Saturday.
The Blue Hens (2-1, 1-0 Atlantic 10) trailed 17-10 entering the

Omar Cuff, who finished with a team-high 76 yards rushing,
converted the turnover into points with a 2-yard touchdown run with
11:13 to play.

reception. Patrick had six catches for 91 yards.
The teams traded field goals to start the game, with Rhode
Island's Brian Giannecchini hitting a 32-yard try and Delaware's
Zach Hobby hitting a 36-yarder.

first quarter, but Jared Bradley' 11-yard touchdown run with 3:46
left in the second tied it up.
