December 11, 2002, Greencastle, Ind. - "It's here," says director of media relations Ken Owen of the DVD of the 2002 Monon Bell football game, copies of which arrived today from Sony Disc Manufacturing. "Those who've already ordered the discs should be receiving it in the next few days, and for those who order now, we can guarantee delivery for Christmas." The three-hour digital platter features every play of the game, the video profiles of DePauw University and Wabash College, the all-time scores of the storied rivalry, and 14 "Monon Memories," vignettes that highlight past battles for the Bell (the 1940, 1953, 1955, 1967, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1977, 1980, 1983, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1997, 2000 and 2001 "Memories" are included on the DVD).

"For fans of this great rivalry, it's a terrific collectible, especially given the addition of the 'Monon Memories.'"
