DePauw held the home team scoreless through the first half, but two touchdowns by Wabash's James "Herc" Stiers decided the affair.

The DePauw football season ends with a 4-3 record. The team's previous losses were to Indiana and Purdue universities. Wabash improves to 2-5 and still has a game remaining versus the University of Nebraska.
