2004 Schedule Includes Five Home Games and One New Opponent
May 4, 2004
Greencastle, Ind. - The 2004 DePauw University football schedule not only highlights the debut of first-year head coach Bill Lynch, but also includes the addition of a new opponent.
Lynch's first game as head coach is a Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference contest at Rhodes College in Memphis on September 4. The next week the Tigers host their first-ever football game with the University of Wisconsin-Stout. The Blue Devils from Menominee, Wis., finished in a tie for fourth in the competitive Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference with a 6-4 record.
The Tigers then host back-to-back games with 2003 NCAA Division III playoff squads in Hope College and Trinity University. The Trinity contest is part of DePauw's Family Weekend. DePauw then takes to the road for a non-conference game at Chicago before returning home to face SCAC foe Sewanee on an October 9 Old Gold Day game.
Following a week off, the Tigers travel to Jackson, Miss., and Danville, Ky., for consecutive SCAC weekends against Millsaps and Centre colleges, respectively.
DePauw concludes the regular season with a pair of local rivals as it entertains Rose-Hulman in the final SCAC game of the year on November 6 and travels to Crawfordsville on November 13 to face Wabash College in the 111th meeting between the two schools and the 73rd for possession of the Monon Bell.Back
