TV/STREAM: CBS Sports Digital

WHEN MAINE HAS THE BALL: The Black Bears (4-3, 3-3 CAA) are developing a balanced offense that is hard to defend. Running back Josh Mack leads the league with 139.9 yards rushing per game. Chris Ferguson, who threw six interceptions when Maine lost two straight, has since passed for 669 yards and no interceptions in three wins. Jaleel Reed (23 catches) and Jared Osumah (22) are his favorite targets. Brandon Briggs is 10 of 12 on extra points but has made his last seven field goals, the longest 43 yards.

WHEN DELAWARE HAS THE BALL: The Blue Hens (5-3, 3-2) will run and try to eat up the clock. Delaware is first in the league in time of possession and second in rushing. Kani Kane, a 6-foot, 240-pound running back, has had two straight 100-yard games. The Blue Hens run so much because their passing game is the worst in the league. J.P. Caruso took the quarterback job from Joe Walker a month ago, but he had only 47 yards passing last week. Kicker Frank Raggo is perfect on extra points and 8 of 12 on field goals, the longest 55 yards.

KEY STAT: 8, the number of consecutive quarters that Maine’s defense has prevented a touchdown.

OUTLOOK: Maine is on a three-game winning streak, but it’s against teams with a combined 2-13 league record. Delaware looked powerful until its 18-17 upset loss at Towson (1-4) last week. This game is a toss-up, with the Black Bears’ balance giving them an edge.

CAA: Delaware has the second best turnover margin (plus-1.25) in the league, and safety Nasir Adderly is among the leaders in interceptions (five). … Each team is hoping to win its last three games to earn postseason consideration.

OF NOTE: Maine has won the last four games against Delaware, and six of the last eight. … Mack, who suffered a slight hip bruise, has practiced all week. Two starting Maine linemen who missed last week’s game could play Saturday. Center Christopher Mulvey has been back at practice, but tackle Cody Levy will be a game-time decision. … This is Maine’s 16th appearance in Portland, the first coming in 1906 (a 0-0 tie with Holy Cross). The Black Bears are 7-7-1 in Portland, having won five in a row, including a 31-7 victory over Albany in 2005.
