The best rivalry game in Kansas, according to ESPN Rise

By J. Long

ESPN Rise picked the best football rivalry games in each state. And the Kansas winner is . . .


Abilene vs. Chapman

These neighboring schools have been playing since 1892 in the oldest rivalry west of the Mississippi River.

I haven’t heard a lot about this rivalry, but since they have been going against one another for over 100 years, I can see why ESPN Rise picked this one.

Do you think they got this one right? If not, who would you have chosen?
