Saturday, November 12, 2011
Senior Jon Ellis scored DePauw's only touchdown during Saturday's Monon Bell Classic. Ellis rushed for 43 yards on 14 carries to lead DPU.

In the 118th meeting between DePauw and Wabash, defense and special teams was key. Wabash's defense and special teams accounted for 28 points as the Little Giants won the Monon Bell Classic Saturday 45-7.

A quick look at the numbers shows the game was a more evenly matched contest that the score indicates. Wabash outgained the Tigers by just 30 yards, 180-150 and the teams had nine first downs each.

DPU senior Jon Ellis provided DePauw with its lone touchdown of the day and led the team in rushing yards with 43.
