One of the oldest rivalries in college football will again be broadcast on national television. The Monon Bell Classic, between DePauw University and Wabash College, will be shown on AXS TV on November 12.
The broadcast will be the 12th time AXS TV presents the game in high definition. DePauw says alumni will also be able to see the game for the first time through a live webcast.
"The presentation executive producer Darrell Ewalt and his team have created is stellar," says Ken Owen, executive director of media relations at DePauw. "We know people will gather at alumni parties and in their homes to watch the game in that traditional way, but we’re also mindful that many of today’s viewers consume programming on the go."
The first meeting between DePauw and Wabash took place in 1890. The name "Monon Bell" comes from a locomotive bell that was donated and used as the winner’s trophy in 1932.
Wabash leads the rivalry by a 60-53-9 lead.
