Matt Wilson writes, "Wabash will have to contend with DePauw (junior) running back Jeremiah Marks, who went over the 1,000-yard plateau for the season after rushing for 67 yards in Saturday's 24-14 win over Austin. Marks rushed for more than 100 yards four times this season and enters Saturday with 197 carries for 1,023 yards and 12 touchdowns. Marks was limited to 19 carries for 31 yardsMonon DVD Cover 2005.jpg in last year's 17-14 loss to Wabash at Blackstock Stadium."
