Jekyll/Hyde Halves Mean Monon Bell Stays in Crawfordsville

November 18, 1950

1950 Monon Bell.jpgNovember 18, 1950, Crawfordsville, Ind. - The DePauw University Tigers jumped out to a 20-6 halftime lead, but a second half surge by Wabash College led to a 34-20 triumph for the Little Giants, who keep the Monon Bell for a second consecutive year. DePauw ends the season with a 4-4 record; Wabash closes the campaign at 4-2-3.

A pair of touchdown passes by DePauw's Gene Gephart and a scoring run by Steve Nagy gave the visiting Tigers an early advantage. But a Wabash interception at the beginning of the second half shifted the momentum, and two blocked kicks and another interception later the Little Giants were tasting victory. Monon Bell Found Shot BW.jpg
