H-SC vs. R-MC Football Game 2008
The oldest small-college football rivalry in the south comes to Randolph-Macon College
on November 14, 2009 when the Yellow Jackets meet the Hampden-Sydney Tigers on the
gridiron. This is a rivalry that dates back to 1893 and has been well-publicized
by local and national media. R-MC’s McGraw-Page Library has put together a history
of the rivalry and you can read all about it by clicking on
R-MC vs. H-SC.
An exciting and spirit-filled week has been planned at R-MC leading up to the big
game. Everyone is invited to help cheer on the Yellow Jacket football team. In addition,
participation helps our students in their quest for the Tiger – Yellow Jacket cup.
It’s an annual competition between the two schools where the winning campus keeps
the cup for the entire year. Last year, R-MC won the cup and hopes to retain it
with your help. Events that are open to the public include:
