The senior running back had a school record 45 carries for 181 yards in the Tigers' 24-21 come-from-behind win over ninth-ranked Wabash in the annual Monon Bell game.

Marks also set single-game career-highs with seven receptions and 97 receiving yards and his two touchdowns in the contest came via pass receptions.

Marks posted a career-high 278 all-purpose yards - the fourth-highest single-game total in DePauw history and the most in a Monon Bell game. His two touchdowns made him the SCAC all-time leader with 336 points and 56 total touchdowns - breaking marks formerly held by Tim McDaniel of Centre (1988-91) who had 54 total touchdowns and 324 points.

It was Marks' 19th career 100-yard rushing game and the senior finishes his career with 3,869 rushing yards (third in SCAC history) and 4,325 all-purpose yards (second in DePauw history).
