SDSU-USD Rivalry Kicks Off Again



Bookmark and Share

It's back.

The Coyotes and the Jackrabbits rivalry has returned to the football field and student and alumni school spirit was in full force.   

From the songs to the chants, there was little love to be found between the red and the blue.

The rivalry even found its way in between a father and son.

“I'm not sitting by him. I'm on the visitor side and I'm going to cheer for the Yotes. Go Yotes,” said USD grad, Wesley Christiansen.

But, what some older alumni on both sides of the field worry about are whether students understand how big the rivalry really is.

“Well these young students got to learn that this was pretty intense. They haven't done it for a while. So, this is pretty serious business,” said SDSU grad, Todd Christiansen.

“I don't know if the students that have been going to school for the last couple of years really understands what the rivalry really means,” said USD grad, Adam Fisher.

But, students feel differently. The feel for years to come there won't be a lack of intensity.

“They can appreciate it more because it kind of started with them. But, I think we're going to take it over and it's going to be just as big as it was back then,” said SDSU student, Sam Seydel.

While the match up may have been lopsided on the field, something both fans can agree on is an in-state rivalry is back.

“I think it will in a couple of years be back to what it was when I was back in school,” said Fisher.

A battle that happened almost every year in the 20th century starts again. Rekindling a rivalry for a new generation of Coyotes and Jackrabbits.
