November 9, 1985
November 9, 1985, Greencastle, Ind. - A pesky Wabash College team denied DePauw University what would have been the school's first-ever trip to the post-season football playoffs, defeating the Tigers 28-8 at a packed Blackstock Stadium.
Little Giants kicker Joe Bevelhimer connected on five field goals and Wabash running back Bill Kaiser carried the ball 58 times for 211 yards.
A strong wind whipped across the field throughout the afternoon, crippling the Tigers' passing attack.
DePauw winds up with an 8-2 record on the season; Wabash finishes at 7-2-1.
