The Tigers then rounded out the quarter with a touchdown scored on a 15-yard run by Gus Baumgartner ‘24.

The Tigers continued to bring the heat in the third quarter. Early in the third, McCahill connected with Jaylon Smith ‘25 for a 19-yard scoring pass. Just two minutes later, Ryland Irvin ‘25 intercepted Kenyon’s quarterback and returned it to score. The final DePauw touchdown of the quarter and the game came when Robby Ballentine ‘26 scored on a 12-yard pass from McCahill, making the score 58-0.

The Owls were able to avoid a shutout, however. In the fourth, they scored their only points on a touchdown with just under seven minutes left in the game, making the final 58-7.
