Last year, Albany beat Delaware on the road. They have many starters returning, a very good coaching staff, the motivation to play spoiler, and should not be taken lightly. Excellent RB,linebackers, and safety; their QB is good and their O-line is solid.

It was '06 that Albany beat Delaware.

They did beat our first round '07 playoff opponent Fordham 23-20.
