SPRINGFIELD – The Western New England University (WNE) and Springfield College athletic departments are collaborating to name the annual football game between the two institutions and are asking fans for their input.|
Despite being located just three miles apart, it will be only the second-ever meeting when the two teams open up their seasons on Sept. 5, under the lights at Springfield College’s Stagg Field at 7 p.m.
Fans are being asked to submit their suggestions for what the game should be called and the winner will take home a $100 gift card to Hot Table.
Suggestions can be entered on either Twitter, @SC_Pride and @WNEAthletics or on Facebook by tagging Springfield College Athletics and Western New England Athletics. Fans are encouraged to use the hashtag #SpringfieldShowdown. Entries will be accepted until Aug. 5.
Last season, the teams ushered in the first installment of the rivalry, and it didn’t disappoint. Played in front of a WNE school-record crowd of 3,442 at Golden Bear Stadium, there was no shortage of offense, as the teams combined for 1,015 yards as the visiting Pride rallied for a 49-40 victory.
