Marks rushed for a DePauw school-record 211 yards on 34 carries tied his own school and SCAC record with five rushing touchdowns. It was just the sixth time a player from the conference has rushed for five TDs in a single game with Marks having accomplished the feat twice. His other five-TD performance came on Oct. 8, 2005 against Sewanee.

He also set a new SCAC career record for rushing touchdowns, extending his total to 49 - breaking the old mark of 47 held by Tim McDaniel of Centre College (1988-1991).
DePauw hosts Austin College on Saturday, October 27, at 1 p.m.
