Kani Kane ran for 124 yards and a touchdown for Delaware (4-2, 2-1 Colonial Athletic Association). Charles Scarff had a pair of touchdown receptions and Vinny Papale had one.
Jaylan Thomas had a nine-yard touchdown run in the first quarter for Elon (4-2, 2-1). Skyler Davis kicked a pair of 25-yard field goals, and a 38-yarder.
But one week after ending James Madison's 20-game CAA win streak, Elon played without leading rusher Malcolm Summers because of a hamstring injury and lost starting quarterback Davis Cheek to a knee injury.
Kehoe threw a 23-yard touchdown pass to Papale to give the Blue Hens a 21-16 lead with seven minutes left. On their next series, Kane had a 32-yard run, then capped a six-play, 53-yard drive with a 2-yard TD run with 4:02 remaining.
Elon drove to the Delaware 42, but a false start penalty, Troy Reeder's sack of Jalen Greene, and then an incomplete pass killed the drive.
