HAMPTON, Va. -- Delmon Williams threw for 305 yards and three touchdowns to lead Hampton past Delaware State 28-15 on Friday night in the MEAC rival opener for both teams.

Knight had four catches for 172 yards and two touchdowns. He also scored from 48 yards out to cap a two-play drive for a 14-12 lead.

Jack McDaniels was 15-of-30 passing for 156 yards for Delaware State. His 1-yard sneak on fourth-and-goal gave the Hornets a 12-7 lead.
