Monon Bell Ticket Sales Begin Monday Morning

Greencastle, Ind. - Tickets for the 123rd Monon Bell Classic between DePauw University and  Wabash College will go on sale Monday, October 24, at 10 a.m. Eastern time.  

The game -- one of college football's oldest and most storied rivalry contests -- will be played Saturday, November 12, in Crawfordsville at Wabash's Hollett Little Giant Stadium on the campus of Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:07 p.m. EST.

For the first time, multiple ticket options will be available for advance sale:

Every person, regardless of age, must have their own ticket for entry to the game.

Additional ticket upgrade, hospitality and parking options will be announced next week. 

DePauw and Wabash first met on the gridiron in 1890, and in 1932 a 300-pound railroad bell was established as the prize for the winning team.  The Little Giants lead the overall series 60-53-9, making it the closest rivalry played more than 50 times than any other in the nation. Since the Monon Bell entered the rivalry in 1932, Wabash leads, 41-37-6.

For the 12th time, this year's game will be televised nationally on AXS TV, and a live stream will be available for the first time, so the game may be viewed worldwide. 

A commemorative, limited edition DVD of the 2016 Monon Bell Classic is available for pre-order at a discounted price before game day.  Learn more here.

All 122 games to date are commemorated in video vignettes known as "Monon Memories."  Created by Ken Owen '82, executive director of media relations at DePauw, the clips can be found here and on YouTube.
