The Monon Bell Game - 50 Years Can Make A Difference
While we of ’62 did not see a Monon Bell victory, these young men of 2013 have four to remember. For the first time in 33 years a group of Wabash seniors have run the table against DePauw. The Little Giants pummeled DePauw’s Tigers on the ground for a 23-0 win in the 119th Monon Bell Classic. Wabash’s senior class becomes the tenth group to go 4-0 in Bell games. The Class of 2013 may have a record of domination unsurpassed at 147-26 scoring differential, including two shutouts in the four -game run. Wabash simply overpowered the visiting Tigers on one of the warmest and nicest days in recent Bell game history. The Little Giants rushed for an incredible 275 yards behind Tyler Holmes’ 169-yard effort to DePauw’s mere 35. Wabash notched its third shutout of the year. “Obviously, our defense played fantastic again,” Coach Erik Raeburn said. “We did a good job on offense running the ball and not turning it over. I’m certainly disappointed with all the penalties in the first half; that really killed some drives.
