Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens (8-5)


South Dakota State wins in game ended after Delaware injury

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) Isaiah Davis ran for two touchdowns and top-seeded South Dakota State defeated Delaware 42-6 on Saturday in a second-round FCS playoff game that ended with just over a minute to go after Blue Hens quarterback Ryan O'Connor was carted off the field.

O'Connor was beginning his slide after a 10-yard gain when he was hit. An unnecessary roughness penalty was called on Tucker Large, and after O'Connor was taken off the field the game was ended.

A post on a Delaware football's official Twitter feed reported that "O'Connor was responsive and moving all of his extremities upon leaving the field and is being examined further."
