The quasquicentennial edition of the series, which began in 1890, will take place Saturday, November 10, in Crawfordsville, with kickoff slated for 1:07 p.m. (Eastern time).

"We've been awaiting final word on the options fans and friends of the rivalry who live outside of the Midwest will have on game day and are thrilled that viewers will have these great choices," said Ken Owen '82, special adviser to the president at DePauw. "This is the second year we've partnered with FOX Sports and I know that the people who gather at approximately 60 alumni parties across the country, as well as those who plan to watch the game at home, are in for another treat."

A listing of telecast parties is available here.

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 61-54-9 lead. Since the Monon Bell entered the rivalry in 1932, Wabash leads, 42-38-6. (at right: the 1916 DePauw-Wabash game; below: the cover of the 1959 game day program)

The game was first televised in 1977 by ABC on a regional basis; national telecasts began in 1984, and the game has been seen on ESPN2 and AXS-TV, among other outlets.

Tickets for the game are available here.

A DVD of the 125th Monon Bell Classic will be created and will include the entire 2018 game, season highlights for both teams, photo galleries, and many other extras.  The disc can be pre-ordered here.
