Yes, it’s true, on November 4th, the two colleges will meet on the football field for the 84th time, with their first contest in 1919 and continuing every year (with the exception of the wartime years of 1943, 1944, and 1945, and also 1991 when their scheduled meeting was cancelled due to the record Halloween snowfall that year). However, there will be much harder hitting, more exciting end arounds and considerably longer Hail Marys at the Grand for the Spelling Bee.
An unidentified Carleton spokesperson said “Our superior preparation will pay off in the contest”. An unnamed St. Olaf source suggested “It’s all about the determination that you bring to game day”. An anonymous Northfield News staff person had the last word, “We’re going to blindside them both”.
So join us to see which team is still standing when the dust has settled, Thursday, September 28th, 7 to 9 pm, at the Grand Event Center. (Click the image for PDF flyer.)
