Tim Irvine, Delaware's senior linebacker from St. Joseph's Prep, already had on his game face early in the week. From Irvine's stern expression, it was clear he wasn't in a joking mood. But Irvine did smile when he was asked about interest in the Yankee Conference game that will be played Saturday in Delaware Stadium (1 p.m. kickoff). "My dad calls every day and tells me I need more tickets," Irvine said. "I think it's up to 24 now. The student interest (thus far) has been unlike any other year I've been here.

Tyrone Frazier, Villanova's all-American senior linebacker, will miss the rest of the season. He tore ligaments in his right knee in Saturday's loss to Delaware and will have surgery in three to four weeks. An MRI on Monday night showed a torn anterior cruciate ligament and torn lateral meniscus. "This is a tremendous loss to our team," Villanova coach Andy Talley said yesterday in a statement. "Not because he's an all-American, but because he's a great leader on the team.

THE WEST Chester-Delaware football series began in 1941 and has been played every year since 1968 except 2001, following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The finale will be Thursday night. Delaware's 46-6-1 dominance isn't the reason the series is ending. Since West Chester is Division II, Delaware victories over the Golden Rams don't count for Division I-AA playoff consideration. "It doesn't do them any good from a playoff standpoint: It can only have a negative effect on them," West Chester coach Bill Zwaan, a former Delaware quarterback, said Tuesday.

Arkansas State runs the wishbone, an offense Delaware has not faced since the 1982 season. Delaware runs the wing-T, which Arkansas State never sees. "I'm the only guy on the staff old enough to have ever seen it," said Larry Lacewell, Arkansas State's 49-year-old down-home coach. "I remember watching it in my younger days, when it was popular. " With each team's defense facing the unknown, Saturday's NCAA Division I-AA quarterfinal at Delaware Stadium might wind up 60-55, with defensive players begging for mercy.

NEWARK, Del. - John Robertson's late-game magic likely earned himself and his Villanova football teammates a week off. Trailing by a point with under two minutes remaining, Robertson marched the Wildcats 68 yards on 10 plays during a drive that included two fourth-down conversions for a dramatic, 35-28 win over Delaware in a Colonial Athletic Association thriller on Saturday at Delaware Stadium. Robertson hit Kevin Gulyas on a 21-yard scoring pass with 23 seconds left and then connected with Poppy Livers on the two-point conversion to complete the comeback.

Gov. Christie decided not to travel to Frisco, Texas, to watch his cherished alma mater, the University of Delaware, compete Friday for a national football championship. "I'd want the kids to come, and they just got back to school," Christie said in an interview Thursday. But the whole family will be glued to ESPN2, he said. Eastern Washington is in for a "severe whipping" at the NCAA championship game, he predicted with his usual gusto this week. Christie, Class of 1984, is a die-hard Fightin' Blue Hens fan. He and some college friends share a block of 16 season tickets by the 10-yard line.

NEWARK, Del. - Delaware reached the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision title game by following the most elementary of rules - winning the turnover battle. The Blue Hens caused five turnovers and committed none as they defeated visiting Georgia Southern, 27-10, in Saturday's FCS semifinal at Delaware Stadium. Delaware (12-2) will meet Eastern Washington for the championship on Jan. 7 at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco, Texas. Eastern Washington followed the same path to the final, forcing six turnovers in Friday's 41-31 semifinal win over Villanova.

NEWARK, Del. - Andrew Pierce shakes his head and offers a wan smile when the topic of The Fumble is raised. "I had the game in my hands," said the Delaware standout running back, a freshman from Cumberland Regional High School. "It stuck with me for a while because we really wanted to win that game. I really want that game back. " The fumble that sent Pierce into a funk came in the regular-season finale against rival Villanova. He was 2 yards from the goal line, 2 yards from a touchdown that would have continued a riveting overtime duel.

If he had his druthers, Pat Devlin would just as soon blend into the scenery at the University of Delaware. It's just that his talent doesn't afford the unassuming 6-foot, 4-inch, 220-pound quarterback a chance at anonymity. The Delaware Blue Hens are one win away from playing for the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title, and no one else wearing the blue-and-gold winged helmet is more responsible than the 22-year-old from Downingtown East High School. "This whole process has been a great journey for me," Devlin said the other day, shortly before the Blue Hens (11-2)

NEWARK, Del. - With subfreezing temperatures, it was a tough night to get loose at Delaware Stadium. Early on in Friday's NCAA Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinals, the Blue Hens' superb quarterback, Pat Devlin, appeared to be Exhibit A. On the first three Delaware possessions, the senior from Downingtown East was tackled at the line of scrimmage, nearly picked off, underthrew an open receiver, and was sacked. But once Devlin's juices got flowing, he methodically picked apart New Hampshire's defense, and his two touchdown passes were enough to send No. 3 seed Delaware (11-2)

NEWARK, Del. - After Villanova's recent two-game skid, the popular belief was the Delaware Blue Hens would defeat their archrival. That led to the belief that Villanova, the defending Football Championship Subdivision champion, wouldn't advance to the playoffs. Oh, really? The 15th-ranked Wildcats destroyed a few beliefs here in Saturday's regular-season finale at Delaware Stadium. Villanova safety Martel Moody forced and recovered a fumble at the Wildcats' 2-yard line in overtime to cap Villanova's 28-21 victory over the top-ranked Blue Hens.
