Delaware 28, Richmond 24

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Joe Flacco threw for 305 yards and two touchdowns and Jared Bradley scored with 43 seconds remaining as Delaware beat Richmond 28-24 on Saturday.

The Blue Hens (4-3, 2-2 Atlantic 10) reached the one yard line following a facemask penalty on Richmond (5-2, 2-2) and Bradley scored the winning run on the next play.

Delaware had pulled to within 24-21 on an 11-yard TD reception by Aaron Love, who scored twice for the Blue Hens.

The Spiders trailed 14-7 at the half, but took a 24-14 lead midway through the fourth when Eric Ward connected on a 5-yard pass to Joe Stewart.

Flacco completed 31 of 45 passes, and Love caught 7 passes for 160 yards, one yard more than he had gained in the first six games. Ward was 16-for-26 for 165 yards with one interception for the Spiders.
