The DePauw Tigers are the athletic teams that represent DePauw University, a small liberal arts school in Greencastle, Indiana. The university's teams play in the NCAA's Division III and currently belong to the North Coast Athletic Conference.

DePauw has a passionate and long-standing rivalry with nearby Wabash College, culminating each football season with the Monon Bell game, which is the sixth most-played Division III rivalry and the 12th-most played in college football.[1] To date, there have been 116 total games played between the two teams, resulting in a lead for Wabash at 55-53-9.[2]

DePauw had been a member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference from 1997 to 2011, and won numerous conference championships, most notably in women's basketball, where the school is a Division III power. DePauw's program had also won the conference's overall "President's Trophy" seven times in that span, including six consecutive President's Trophies from 2005-06 to 2010-11.[2]

Football

DePauw is currently the 17th most winning franchise in Division III history and have been the co-champions of the SCAC four times.[3]

In 1933, head coach Ray "Gaumey" Neal led the DePauw Tigers football team to an unbeaten, untied, and unscored opening season. The Tigers compiled a 7-0-0 record and outscored their opponents 136-0. Neal nearly duplicated this feat in 1943, but DePauw, 5-0-1, finished the season with one scoreless tie and six points allowed in a different game. The only points surrendered that season were in a 39-6 victory over Indiana State and the only non-win was a 0-0 tie against Oberlin. The Tigers outscored their opponents, 206-6.[4]

Basketball

The DePauw University women's basketball team won the Division III National Championship in 2007 and 2013. They defeated Washington University in Springfield, MA to win the first team national championship in the school's history and then defeated the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater to win their second. In addition to their national championship, the women's team has also won 9 SCAC championships and reached the national quarterfinals four times.[5]

The DePauw University men's basketball team has won two SCAC championships; they also reached the NCAA Division III Final Four two times in their history (1984_3rd place under Coach Mike Steele & 1990_National Runner-Up under Coach Royce Waltman). Current Clemson Tigers coach Brad Brownell was a star of the 1990 team.[6] In addition to their success on the court, former DePauw basketball player Brad Stevens has found great success coaching as well. After graduating from DePauw in 1999, Stevens went on to coach the Butler Bulldogs at the Division I level. In the 2009-10 season, Stevens led his team to the national championship game before eventually losing to Duke.[7] Then during the 2010-11 season, he led Butler back to the national championship game again before losing to UConn.
