The home team dented the scoreboard with a touchdown, two drop kicks, and a safety to claim victory in the game with their rivals to the south.

A contingent of 225 DePauw fans made the trip to enemy territory for today's contest, which was played in ideal weather conditions. They paraded toward the field chanting, "Wahoo! Wahoo! Rip-zip-bazoo! I yell, I yell, DPU!"
