The disc -- a joint project of DePauw and Wabash -- presents the game in widescreen and enhanced for 16x9 televisions.  Also included are photo galleries of this year's clash between the Tigers and Little Giants as well as a collection of hundreds of historic images dating back to the rivalry's early days; "Monon Memories" of memorable contests;  the music video for The Ballad of the Monon Bell; season highlights for both football programs; video of the October 12 dedication of Nick Mourouzis Field; and other features.

The 2013 game is the seventeenth contest in the historic series to be captured on DVD.

DePauw and Wabash first met on the gridiron in 1890. In the all-time series, the Little Giants hold a 58-53-9 lead. Since the Monon Bell entered the rivalry in 1932, Wabash leads, 39-37-6. 

The Monon Bell Classic was voted Indiana's best college sports rivalry by fans of ESPN, and is the subject of a new book authored by Tyler James '11, The Monon Bell Rivalry: Classic Clashes of DePauw vs. Wabash. It was also noted on ESPN's College GameDay this year.

All 120 games to date are commemorated in video vignettes known as "Monon Memories."  Created by Ken Owen '82, the clips can be found here and on YouTube.
