He added, "It's what college football was all about and perhaps always should be -- an intimate meeting between rivals where school pride is as important as a win."

This year's game marked the 100th anniversary of the first football contest between the two schools.

When asked about the second effort he made to reach the end zone, Dickey says, "You can only give a secondterry dickey thr.jpg effort, or a third effort. You've got to do what it takes to get ahead in this game and that's what we all did."

Senior quarterback Brad Toone adds, "We've been a team all the way through. We pull together when we have to and we end up winning in the end and that's what it's all about."

The victory gives the Tigers and head coach Nick Mourouzis their fourth consecutive Bell triumph and their first Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference football championship.
