the ST. XAVIER vs. TRINITY rivalry in Louisville, KY is WITHOUT A DOUBT the best high school rivalry in the nation. No other high school football rivalry can say that they annually draw over 35,000 people to that game. last year this game drew 38,500 to the game. These two teams also met for the state championship. They are the two most storied teams in the State of Kentucky. It almost fills the University of Louisville's 42,000 seat stadium. It has been RATED BY MANY PUBLICATIONS AS THE #1 RIVALRY IN THE NATION. the spirit of this rivalry is unlike any other rivalry in the nation.
Hm, hate to break it to you...but I know of one that has a record of about 45,000 people to attend this game.. JENKS VS. UNION in oklahoma. now you tell me, are those kentucky teams having a movie made after the rivalry? and just so you know, jenks vs union is currently the number 1 in the nation rated by SI. In the past 11 years, jenks or union has won the state championship. jenks has won 28 of the 39 games between the two. This one also fills the TU stadium...they are also a story on ESPN every year and there's a rumor that union/jenks may be asked to be the next two-a-days team. union is currently 0-2 and they're losing right now (they're number 3 in the state) and then jenks is currently 2-0 and it looks like they're going to win because the score as of right now is 17-0 in the 4th quarter...jenks is the number 1 team in the state in 6A. because I am a jenks fan, I need to point out that jenks won last week..we beat union..once again.

no doubt the JENKS VS. UNION game is the biggest game in recent yrs .. st.x vs trinity is big too. massillon vs mckinley goes back to the late 1800's.. dont draw 45,000 but it does get on the board in vegas every yr to bet on it.. hope jenks or union come to ohio for the herb street challenge next yr .. hoover is ... the games this yr were awsome .. ohio was 4-5 vs the nations best !! this should be a forum for what state has the best football.. OHIO !!!

You all can't deny the grand daddy of them all... Starting in 1894, yes 116 long years ago...

Massillon Tigers vs McKinley Bulldogs.

Massillon is second in the NATION in wins following Valdosta Georgia. Mass is also the winningest in ohio.

McKinley is the sceond most winning program in ohio.

Now which rivalry is the BEST?

Tuckahoe VS Bronxville is the greatest rivalry in High School Football because of proximity. We're less than 2 miles away from each other and this game draws Alumni from all over the country.When you hear Tuckahoe VS Bronxville you know there's standing room only!!!

its definately Valdosta vs Lowndes. Valdosta High School is the winningest high school in America with countless state and national championships, and Lowndes has won the last state championships for the State of Georgia. Winnersville Classic is exactly that whoever wins that game usually goes on to win the state championship.

I am a graduate of St.Xavier, class of '94. This rivalry has to be top 3 in the country, if not the biggest. I say this because the rivalry extends beyond the football field. Both schools are "boys only" catholic schools, separated by a mere 10 miles. This hatred is seen on the baseball field, the basketball court, the soccer field, the golf course, and even in the swimming pool.
