One of college football’s oldest rivalries will continue this weekend in Crawfordsville with the Monon Bell Classic between DePauw University and Wabash College. The 123rd edition of the game will air nationwide Saturday on AXS TV.
Kickoff is scheduled for 1:09 p.m. at the Byron P. Hollett Little Giant Stadium in Crawfordsville. In addition to the nationwide television broadcast, which AXS TV has provided since 2006, DePauw alumni will also have access to the game via a live webcast.
The rivalry between the two schools dates back to 1890. Each year, the winner receives the Monon Bell, a locomotive bell from the Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville Railroad Co., also known as the Monon Line, as a trophy.
Wabash currently leads the rivalry by a 60-53-9 lead.
