Indianapolis Fox Affiliate Previews Saturday's Big Game
November 11, 2010
November 11, 2010, Greencastle, Ind. — "The annual showdown for the Monon Bell is Saturday," noted Jeremiah Johnson on Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN-TV in his sportscast tonight. "It is Wabash who will try to keep the coveted hardware in Crawfordsville, but DePauw (is) probably going to make that very difficult. The Tigers have opened the season with nine consecutive wins," he explained.
The footage that followed shows the Tigers preparing for Saturday's rivalry game, and includes comments from head coach Robby Long, senior All-American wide receiver Alex Koors, and senior offensive tackle Paul DePoy.
