The game with the Irish, although somewhat marred by the usual early season penalties, was a thriller. The Bobcats scored in the first quarter, missed a touchdown by inches in the second, and were still out in front 6-0 when the final gun barked, as a result of “the Bay-singer of the west,” Krejci, having made a thirty-four-yard pass to Young, and Hertz's three plunges into the line.
The next non-conference game provided one of the thrillers of the home season. Marysville Teachers, sporting Meek, all-Missouri Conference tackle, and Fisher and Duce, two all-Conference backs, plus a well balanced team, caused the Bobcat an exceedingly busy afternoon. However, with two minutes to play, the Krejci-to Case-beer combination came into its own and interspersed with a drive or two into the forward wall by Sautters, kept Peru’s slate clean with the second 6-0 victory of the year.

CAPTAIN DARIS BUNCH, loved by his teammates and feared by opponents, led the 1928 Bobcats to a football championship this year in the newly organized N. I. A. A. conference. Bunch has been one of the mainstays in the Graf-coached machine since his entry into college football and has three times been chosen all-state center. Captain Bunch is a leader in the classroom as well as on the gridiron.
Some fifty men, among whom were a score of lettermen, including Captain Bunch, gladdened the heart of head Coach, Lon “Little Knute” Graf, when he called for defenders for the blue and white’s state football championship standards.

After weeks of fundamentals, the ever hated but necessary calisthenics, sweat, and nightly scrimmages with eager freshmen, the varsity was given its first taste of collegiate football on September 29, when the Irish from St. Benedicts College, Atchison, Kansas, invaded the Bobcat lair to do battle.

St. Louis was the scene of the next struggle where the Bobcats tackled the Billikens of St. Louis University, one of the leading teams in the middle west.
Lintzenick, locomotive fullback of the Billikens. crashed over for a score early in the fourth period to give St. Louis a 6-0 lead. But, after bungling two golden opportunities to score, the Bobcats took one last chance, and in the dying minutes of the game, Krejci cut loose with one of the greatest passes ever thrown on the St. Louis gridiron. Hofmann, the ever-alert, was standing on the goal line some 55 yards away and the game went down on the records a 6-6 tie.
With the sweet must come the bitter, and on their “eastern invasion” Peru suffered her first defeat, 16-12, at the hands of Still College in the Osteopaths’ back yard. The Bobcat was doped to win, but after the storm at St. Louis the lull came.
