Over 35,000 fans of the rival schools are expected to fill Papa John’s Cardinals Stadium in this annual grid-iron football event. This will mark the 77th meeting of the historical rivalry game. Both the Shamrocks and Tigers are currently ranked in the Top 10 of the Kentucky State Rankings. Trinity is ranked number (1) while St X. is currently ranked number (9).

The Rivalry has been one-sided over the last few seasons with the Trinity Shamrock’s on a 5 year winning streak.

“It’s very important to end the streak, because it’s one of the biggest rivalries in the country, and we want to keep it a rivalry, so we need to win eventually, and were looking to win this week, said Smith.”
