Oct. 28, 1978: The late College Football Hall of Fame running back Joe Delaney of Northwestern State has his “breakout” game in a 28-18 triumph over Nicholls State. He volunteers to play tailback after several NSU players are injured in preseason and responds with an 87-yard run early in the third quarter. He tallies 28 carries for 299 yards on the day, still the Demons’ single-game mark and a former NCAA FCS (I-AA) record.
