The 2008 Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens football team represented the University of Delaware in the 2008 NCAA Division I FCS football season as a member of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA). K. C. Keeler served as head coach for the seventh season. Keeler twice brought the Blue Hens to the FCS championship game, and won in 2003. In 2007, the team lost in the final to Appalachian State. The 2008 season proved to be one of Delaware's worst seasons in its 117-year history. It was the only year that the Blue Hens have lost eight games.[1]
