NEWARK, Del. (AP)Nolan Henderson threw for three touchdowns, two to Braden Brose, and Delaware beat Delaware State 35-9 on Saturday for coach Ryan Carty’s first win at Delaware Stadium.

Brose capped the 11-yard drive with a 7-yard touchdown for a 21-3 lead.
Marcus Yarns had four carries for 99 yards and a score for Delaware (2-0). Thyrick Pitts caught seven passes for 94 yards and a score, and Brose made three catches for 37 yards.
Jared Lewis was 10-of-24 passing for 153 yards, including a 57-yard touchdown to Rahkeem Smith for Delaware State (1-1). Jonathan Cardoza-Chicas made a 54-yard field goal.
