Lehigh vs. Lafayette: A Rivalry for the Ages

Updated: Sep 20, 2019


WFMZ: “The annual Lafayette-Lehigh college football game took place Saturday afternoon in Easton. Better known as The Rivalry, it is the most-played football rivalry in the nation … The Leopards and Mountain Hawks own the most-played football rivalry in the nation. Prior to Saturday’s game, the two had played 153 times since 1884 with Lehigh taking the last three but Lafayette owning the all-time series record.”


“This is the only game that matters. None of the other games really matter,” Lafayette senior Magee said. “As I say to my buddies every year, it’s always a one-game season,” 1989 Lehigh grad Jeff Gendel said. “If you beat Lafayette it’s a good year. If you don’t beat Lafayette it wasn’t the best year.” But just having “The Rivalry” continue on is enough for some. “No matter how good or bad the teams are every year, there’s always something to play for and that’s to beat your arch rival on Lehigh-Lafayette football day.”

Lehigh won, 34-3.
