FRISCO (AP) – Bo Levi Mitchell led three straight late touchdown drives, the finale coming with 2:47 left, leading Eastern Washington to a 20-19 victory over Delaware and its first FCS championship.

The Eagles (13-2) trailed 19-0 and had gained only 92 yards midway through the third quarter Friday night. Facing the defense that gave up the fewest points per game in the FCS, their title hopes looked shot.
But Mitchell took them on drives of 80, 89 and 69 yards. He converted a fourth-and-8 on the second of those series and needed two video replays to uphold a fourth-and-1 conversion a few plays before the winning touchdown.

Delaware (12-3)  with Vice President Joe Biden, an alum, watching five rows behind the team’s bench, had one last try, but turned the ball over on downs with 47 seconds left.
