Blue Hens open their season against West Chester

Football is back in Newark tonight as the Blue Hens open the college football season against West Chester.  

Kick off tonight at Delaware Stadium is at 7:30 p.m.  As usual, the parking lots around the stadium will open four hours before game time for tailgating, so expect some extra traffic around South College Avenue and Route 4 if you are going to be in Newark early this afternoon.  The Hens look for a fresh start against long time rival West Chester following a disappointing 2011 season.
