Win overtime at South Carolina, the MEAC's toughest places to play
Freshman Nathan Wilson hit an 18-yard field goal in overtime to give Delaware State a 27-24 victory over MEAC-winning South Carolina State.
The winning kick was set up by an interception from DSU cornerback Charles Peeler on South Carolina State's first offensive game in overtime.
This marked DSU's first win in the SC state since 2007 and improved the Hornets' records to 5–4 overall and 2–2 in the MEAC.
DSU fell to the SC State one-yard line after playing overtime four consecutive times, sending head coach Rod Milstead to Wilson for a game-winning run.
Delaware State moved into the sole right of third place in the conference, leaving behind only North Carolina Central (3–1) and Howard (2–1) which accounted for DSU's two losses.
Delaware State led 24-17 after tight end Miles Morales caught a 1-yard "pop pass" touchdown after a straight snap to run back to Wade Eng.
In the final minute of the fourth quarter, the game leveled South Carolina State on a touchdown pass.
Extended the lead to 24–14 after a 25-yard TD run by the Marquis Gillis of Milford, Delaware, who now has 6 running TDs in the season.
On November 12, DSU finished the season with home games against MEAC rival Morgan State and on November 19 against Campbell University of the Big South Conference.
