On one Saturday each November, DePauw University and Wabash College meet on the gridiron in one of college football's oldest and most colorful rivalries. The two west central Indiana schools have faced each other 119 times with Wabash holding a 57-53-9 lead. Since the Monon Bell entered the rivalry in 1932, Wabash leads the series, 38-37-6.|
The teams not only play for pride but also for possession of the 300-pound Monon (pronounced MOE-non) Bell; the trophy that goes to the winning team.
Since 1890, the teams have battled each other making the series the oldest small college football rivalry west of the Alleghenies amongst schools that have met at least 100 times. The two schools have met each of the last 102 years dating back to 1911. Only during 1897-1899, inclusive, and in 1902 and 1910 have the two schools on the Monon Railroad Line (now L & N) failed to play one another.
November 16, 2013, marks the 121st game between DePauw and Wabash hosted on Nick Mourouzis Field at Blackstock Stadium.
