This day in 2011
In the first FCS Championship played in Frisco, Texas, Eastern Washington posted a late rally to defeat Delaware, 20-19. The Blue Hens seemingly controlled the game midway through the third quarter, claiming a 19-0 lead while limiting the Eagles to 92 yards of total offense. However, three touchdown passes from Bo Levi Mitchell over the game’s final 17 minutes, including the game-winner with 2:47 to play, gave Eastern Washington its first national championship in school history.
