Delaware State announces revised Spring 2021 football schedule

By Kevin Kelley -

The Delaware State Hornets have announced their revised Spring 2021 football schedule, which includes five games overall.

Delaware State was forced to revise their schedule following Thursday’s announcement that the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) had suspended the spring 2021 season.

The Hornets, along with the Howard Bison and South Carolina State Bulldogs, each announced that they intended to continue their football season this spring with contests against each other. With the MEAC season suspended, those games will count as non-conference contests.

Delaware State will now open the spring 2021 season on Saturday, Feb. 27 at home at Alumni Stadium in Dover, Dela., against the Howard Bison. After an open date on March 6, the Hornets will travel to take on the South Carolina State Bulldogs on March 13.

After their second open date on March 20, Delaware State travels to complete a home-and-home series with Howard on March 27.

Delaware State closes out the spring 2021 season with back-to-back home games in Dover. South Carolina State visits for the second game of their series on April 3, and that’s followed by the first-ever visit from the in-state rival Delaware Blue Hens on April 10.

Below is Delaware State’s complete Spring 2021 football schedule and a link to their schedule page that will be updated with kickoff times and TV as they are announced.
