MUS-CBHS Rivalry Cup

The MUS-CBHS football rivalry goes back to 1894, when the Owls beat the Brothers 20-0. Now the regular-season record is tied – 26-26-3. Both teams are hoping to break that tie this Friday, when they meet at Tom Nix Stadium at CBHS. A new trophy, The Rivalry Cup, will also be at stake. The trophy, engraved with the win-loss record, will be presented to the winning team at a school assembly after the game. It bears this inscription: “The Rivalry Cup was established to encourage service and leadership in honor of legendary hall of fame coaches Tom Nix and Jake Rudolph, all of the players, coaches, students, alumni, and fans of MUS and CBHS, and these two great institutions that have competed with dignity and respect since 1894.” Each year the host team will take donations at the game to contribute to a local charity, this year St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
