There will be a two-day period (October 24-25) in which DePauw students, staff and faculty may come to the Lilly Center Athletic Department Office between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., show their valid ID and pick up complimentary tickets. Current students will receive one ticket, while staff and faculty will be allowed no more than two. During these two days there will be no cash purchases available.

Wednesday, October 26, is the first day for the sale of tickets which may be purchased in person for $10 with either cash or a check made payable to DePauw University. Tickets may also be purchased over the phone by calling 1-800-446-5295. Visa and MasterCard are the two methods of payment over the phone. There is a maximum of eight tickets per purchase. Tickets will be sold from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the week and there will be no weekend sales. Students, staff and students may also pick up their tickets during this period as long as tickets remain. 

"As is the case every year, I can't stress enough how important for fans to make plans to obtain tickets early as the game will sell out quickly," Cotton said.

Tickets sold at DePauw will be for seating on the DePauw side of Blackstock Stadium only.

The 112th gridiron meeting between the two schools and 74th for possession of the Monon Bell kicks off at 1:05 p.m. in Blackstock Stadium on Saturday, November 12. The series is tied 51-51-9 with DePauw holding a 35-32-6 lead in Monon Bell games after last year's 14-7 win in Crawfordsville. For the second straight year, the game will be telecast nationally on DirecTV Channel 321 and locally on WHMB (Channel 40 in Indianapolis).
