Liberty defeats Delaware State in season opener, 32-13

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) Josh Woodrum connected with Darrin Peterson on a pair of touchdowns as Liberty defeated Delaware State 32-13 in a season opener for both teams on Saturday night.

Woodrum, who completed 19 of 32 passes for 188 yards, hooked up with Peterson on a 26-yard scoring play midway through the first quarter, and the Flames boosted the lead less than two minutes later when Desmond Rice, 139 yards, rushed for a 23-yard TD.

Rice’s score was set up when Delaware State’s Esayah Obado was intercepted. Obado, who passed for 227 yards after missing 2014 to injury, was picked off a second time, ending a late Hornets drive at the 1-yard line. He was also tackled in the end zone for a safety.

Liberty’s John Lunsford boomed a 52-yard field goal. Lunsford set the school record with a 60-yarder last season.

The loss spoiled the debut of coach Kenny Carter, previously an assistant at Florida, Louisville and Youngstown State.
