TOWSON, Md. -- Leon Jackson ran for three touchdowns and Pat Devlin threw two scoring passes to lead Delaware to a 49-21 victory over Towson on Saturday.

Charles Graves returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the first half as the Blue Hens (5-2, 3-2 Colonial Athletic Association) rolled to a 49-0 lead en route to its third straight victory.

Delaware's Jerry Butler opened the second half with an 89-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, setting a school record with his third career return for a score.

Towson (2-4, 1-2) lost quarterback Peter Athens to a leg injury in the first quarter. Tommy Chroninger ran for 97 second-half yards and directed three fourth-quarter scoring drives.

Dominique Booker, Chroninger and Tremayne Dameron ran for touchdowns for the Tigers, who lost for the third time in four games.
