DOVER, Del. -- Nick Elko threw for 245 yards and a touchdown and Delaware State's defense forced three turnovers in the Hornets' 24-0 win over North Carolina A&T on Saturday.
It was Delaware State's first shutout since the Hornets (4-3, 3-1 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) defeated the Aggies 27-0 in 2007.
Elko completed 22 of 36 passes and was sacked just one time. His 13-yard touchdown pass to Travis Tarpley gave the Hornets a 14-0 lead.
Mitchell Ward pushed that lead to 17-0 at halftime with his 23-yard field goal.
Delaware State's defense took over in the second half. Quintin Fortes recovered a North Carolina A&T (3-4, 1-3) fumble in the quarter and Jermond Colston intercepted Lewis Kindle's pass and returned it 85 yards for a touchdown in the fourth.
