UIL 100: 100 Years, 100 Rivalries

In celebration of 100 years of UIL Texas high school football, the UIL and Dave Campbell’s Texas Football have teamed up to honor the best, the brightest and the most unforgettable icons and legends in the sport’s illustrious history. With the help of some of the state’s foremost experts and historians, the UIL and DCTF will honor 100 of the most legendary rivalries in the state's illustrious history.

Each week throughout the 2020 season, Dave Campbell’s Texas Football will announce 10 honorees on the list, an indelible honor to be known as one of the greatest in Texas high school football history. Fans will then have an opportunity to weigh in, voting for the rivalry they think is the best of the best, to be named as a UIL 100 Fan’s Choice.

It all leads up to a celebration as big as Texas, celebrating the UIL’s 100 Rivalries — and the Fan’s Choice Top 10 — at the UIL Texas high school football state championship games at AT&T Stadium in Arlington this December.


Marshall vs. Texas High
It might not be the first rivalry you think of when you picture east Texas feuds, but for historians, Texas High vs Marshall is very real. These two east Texas teams have met just under 100 times dating back to 1910.

Memphis vs. Wellington
In recent years, this one’s swung more in favor of the Skyrockets, but Memphis is always up for a clash with its rival of over 90 years. It’s one of the oldest small school rivalries in West Texas. 

Longview vs. Marshall
With the first game being played on Thanksgiving Day of 1909, this historic East Texas rivalry series is the fourth longest standing rivalry in Texas high school football.
Liberty Hill vs. Burnet
Separated by just 20 miles this heated Highway 29 rivalry between the Bulldogs and the Panthers has long been a staple for Hill Country bragging rights.
New Braunfels vs. Seguin 
One of the state’s oldest rivalries, this series started in 1922 and the two schools have played every year since 1927.  New Braunfels holds a 67-38-3 lead over Seguin in the long running series.  
Amarillo  vs. Amarillo Palo Duro 
The oldest rivalry in Amarillo ISD, the series started back in 1956 and Palo Duro despite their recent struggles holds a 39-21-2 lead over Amarillo High. Amarillo High does hold a fifteen game winning streak over the Dons in the series.  
Tyler High vs. Tyler Legacy
Easily one of the most heated rivalries in the state, the Rose City Rivalry has it all: great talent, storied programs, proximity and meaningful contests. This game has it all with a 60-plus year history to prove it.
La Marque vs. Galveston Ball
There isn’t a rivalry that rivals the Clash of the Causeway in Galveston County. The two schools aren’t in the same district even though they’re less than 15 miles apart, but that has absolutely no bearing on the importance of this one. It matters, and it a matters a ton.

Little River Academy vs. Rogers
It's a Central Texas small school rivalry that dates back to the Great Depression, including the past 61 years in which the Bumblebees and the Eagles have squared off each season. There's no love lost here.

Thorndale vs. Thrall
More than 90 meetings since 1925 haven't seemed to settle the score between these Williamson/Milam County foes, and though Thorndale has a healthy lead in the series, we're starting to think they'll never figure out their differences.
