Delaware State Hornets TicketsWhen it comes to historical turning points for college football programs, not too many can match the Hornets. After suffering an unprecedented and highest-ever loss in 1980, which is when the Vikings beat them with 105 to 0, Delaware State decided to rebuild the entire program. They hired a new head coach and numerous coordinators who helped them step outside the shadow of countless losing seasons. Since then, although they still carry more cumulative losses than wins, the Hornets have been a mention-worthy program of NCAA Division I football for years. They won a total of eight conference titles and continue to hold two claimed national championships. With the upcoming season that is only days away, folks in the Dover area will soon hear The Approaching Storm Marching Band once more as the team prepares to take on the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens. Courtesy of this in-state competition that will be the season-opener, visitors can expect a fun and engaging face-off between long-time rivals.
