For over 100 years Troy has had a historic rivalry with "that town up north".  Since 1899 (consecutively since 1911) Troy and Piqua have battled on the gridiron in what has been recognized as a "Great American Rivalry" and next weekend they will face off for the 127th time.

 

Troy has had the upper hand of late, winning four in a row, and leads the the historic battle 61-59-6.  Troy is currently tied with Trotwood for the GWOC North with an overall record of 5-1 and Piqua now 3-3 with a last minute loss to Trotwood last week.

 

Much like the great rivalry between OSU and Michigan, all records are set aside and the same can be said between the Trojans and Indians.  It is a game that is fueled by tradition, decided by desire, and memories that last forever for anyone that has participated in it.

 

This Friday, at Troy Memorial Stadium, another chapter of this epic battle will be written with bragging rights to the victor for the following year.  Those bragging rights have been closely split for over 100 years and as a tribute to all those teams that have earned that right, scores throughout the years are as follows...
