I think DePauw will win in a shootout.  Wabash exposed some serious flaws in Witt's pass defense and DPU will be able to exploit them.  I look for both teams to throw - 800 combined passing yards would not be a surprise.  The weather will not be a factor (60s and no wind) and Lynch will have his guys tuned up.  This is his biggest game to date at DPU - IMHO there was no realistic expectation of beating Wabash his first two years there.

“I’m not saying I told you so, but going into it, I said (DePauw) would be the darkhorse in this thing,” Wittenberg coach Joe Fincham said. “Maybe they’re not the darkhorse. I’m not sure they don’t have the best offense in the league, and I’m not 100 percent sure they don’t have the best defense in the league not named Wabash. It’s homecoming. They’re undefeated. Obviously, they’re going to be excited to see us show up.”

True that but Jablonski could use a geography lesson - "Greendingle" is thirty miles south of Crawfordsville, not north.  That would be Purdue, so same road (US231), different direction.   ;D

Same colors, probably similar quality football. :)

I think Witt wins by 17+. No real analysis. Just my gut feeling.

As I mentioned to a few earlier in the week,  I simply don't know which way it will go in the DPU/Witt game.   It could be close; or maybe Depauw even gets a late break and wins OR Witt could win by 4 TD's....  both scenarios would not shock me.

We shall see.

Like they did against Wabash, Witt keeps turning it over against DePauw -- #4 and it's not even ha;ftime.  DePauw up 14-3 wih 9:41 to go til half.

Witt's corners can't hang with Depauws big recievers and tight ends. Looks familiar.
