DePaul football…what?

29 Dec


So DePaul has neither a hockey team nor a football team…at least not currently.

But that didn’t stop the Chicago Daily Herald from including DePaul football in its article on the New Year’s Day hockey game at Wrigley Field pitting the Chicago Blackhawks against the Detroit Red Wings.


From the Chicago Daily Herald’s list of Wrigley Field highlights through the years:


Oct. 29, 1927: DePaul University beat Loyola University 12-6 in the first football game between the rival schools since 1922. The game drew 15,000 for DePaul’s homecoming.


DePaul’s football program was eliminated in 1939.
