|The Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens are one of the perennial powerhouses of NCAA Division I-AA football. In its 116 year history, Delaware has collected six national titles: 1946, 1963, 1971, 1972, 1979 and 2003. The Blue Hens are the only Division I-AA team to attract 20,000 fans per game during the regular season, having done so for each of the past seven years.
A measure of the success of Delaware's football program is its having three straight head football coaches inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame:
William D. Murray: 1940-1950, Record: 49-16-2
Dave Nelson: 1951-1965, Record: 84-42-2
Harold "Tubby" Raymond: 1966-2001, Record: 300-119-3
The only other university to have three consecutive football coaches inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame is Georgia Tech.
