DePauw and Wabash first met on the gridiron in 1890.  In 1932, a locomotive bell from the Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville Railroad Company, also known as the Monon Line, was donated and became the winner's trophy each year.

In the all-time series, Wabash holds a 60-54-9 lead. Since the Monon Bell entered the rivalry in 1932, Wabash leads, 41-38-6.

This year's game will again be televised and can be seen across America.  Details are coming shortly.

To date, 21 contests in the historic series have been captured on DVD. Available are the DVDs of the 1977, 1984, 1993, 1994 and 2000-16 Monon Bell Classics (supplies of past games are extremely limited and the 1994 and 2000 games is sold out; the 2008 package is a two-disc set including all 115 "Monon Memories" produced to that date). Order them here. (at left: the front cover of the 2016 Monon Bell DVD)
