Series: Delaware leads 11-7.

What’s at stake: In 48 years of football, only in 1971 has Towson failed to score as many as 20 points in a game on at least two occasions. With four games left, the Tigers have yet to score more than 17 — and they’ll be hard-pressed to do so at homecoming against a Delaware team that surrendered only 20 points in a Sept. 30 loss to James Madison, the defending NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision champion.

Key matchup: Can the Tigers stop Delaware’s Jamie Jarmon, an elusive wide receiver who just scored three touchdowns (two rushing) in a 42-35, double-overtime upset of Richmond, ranked No. 10 in the FCS? That effort earned Jarmon the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Week award.

Player to watch: Towson’s Kanyia Anderson, a 256-pound defensive lineman who had both a sack and a 93-yard fumble return for a touchdown in a 40-17 loss at New Hampshire last week.
