1960 Monon Bell.jpgNovember 12, 1960, Crawfordsville, Ind. - Coach Tom Mont's decision to fake an extra point kick and go for a two-point conversion instead was the difference, as DePauw University defeated Wabash College in the annual battle for the Monon Bell, 14-13. The win ends DePauw's 3-5-1 season on a high note.

Wabash had a 13-6 advantage with four minutes left, when the home team turned the ball over. DePauw drove the field, and with 48 seconds left quarterback John Rubush pitched to Dan Blunt and he rambled in from 4 yards out. The Tigers lined up for an extra point, but instead Rubush took the snap and ran in for two points.
