Delaware is heading to the Football Championship Subdivision semifinals. Joe Flaccow threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Blue Hens past top-seeded Northern Iowa 39-27 today. It was the Panthers' first loss of the season.

Omar Cuff added 102 yards and a touchdown for Delaware. The Blue Hens will play Southern Illinois next weekend for the right to advance to the national championship game December 14th.

Delaware won the national title in 2003.

Northern Iowa jumped to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter, but then Flacco and the Blue Hens' offense got to work.
