Wittenberg answered that score with a 16-play, 67-yard drive, running more than eight minutes off the clock before scoring with 1:40 to play on a 32-yard field-goal by Christian Seger, who had a 27-yard attempt blocked in the second quarter.

On the next play, Jones intercepted a pass at the 23 and returned the ball to the DePauw 46. Wittenberg then knelt on the ball to end the game.
