Not so fast," noted Indianapolis FOX affiliate WXIN during the Monon Bell highlights it aired during its late newscast tonight. The station's 10 p.m. broadcast included footage of the game and post-game interviews with Spud Dick and Casey Ellinger.

DePauw opened a 30-0 lead against their rivals and coasted to a 36-14 victory in Crawfordsville for their second consecutive Monon Bell victory.

NBC affiliate WTHR was also on hand for today's 115th Monon Bell Classic. Dick, the team's record-setting quarterback who threw for two touchdowns on the day, also appears in video which aired in the station's 6 p.m. newscast. Video Link [Download Video: "WTHR Clip" - 2637kb]
