HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA-For the 117th time since the rivalry began in 1893, Hampden-Sydney College and Randolph-Macon will meet in "The Game." The Game is the Oldest Small School Rivalry in the South, and the 2011 ODAC Champion Tigers hold a 60-45-11 advantage in the series. The Tigers have also been successful as of late, winning nine of the 11 meetings under head coach Marty Favret. Three of the games since 2000 have decided the ODAC Champion; the Tigers took the crown two times on Day Field in 2007 and 2009, but the Jackets returned the favor at Everett Stadium in 2008 with a 31-21 victory.
This year, the Game will not stand for a championship, but as always bragging rights are on the line. In addition, the Game is still very important for the Tigers in terms of post season positioning. It will also be the second year, and the first in Ashland, the two teams are playing for the Game Ball Trophy.
While the Tigers are coming off a huge 42-35 win over Washington & Lee, the Jackets are also in good spirits, having just downed the Eagles of Bridgewater College 51-36.
