The story by Jordan J Wilson appears in today's editions.

"'It’s unbelievable,' Hunt said smiling, surrounded on all sides by Tigers fans who stormed the field in the aftermath. Most of them hugged him. A few of them kissed him. 'You see all these people out here, I can’t -- I’m just so happy for these guys, for our team, for our school.'"

DePauw captured the prize of the rivalry -- which began in 1890 -- for the first time since 2008.

Hunt, a "Heritage Christian grad went 19-for-35 passing with 241 yards and two touchdowns. He scrambled and dashed with the ball for another 159 yards and three more touchdowns -- including a 50-yard bolt up the middle of the field that gave the Tigers a 30-27 lead with 4:48 lead remaining.'
