Known as THE RIVALRY, the Lehigh-Lafayette football game is the most-played college football rivalry in the nation. The two teams first took to the gridiron in 1884, just one year after the first standardized football rules were established, and have played 155 times since.
The 157th edition of the most-played rivalry in all of college football will be on November 20th at Goodman Stadium.
Rivalry 156: Lehigh Falls 20-13
In a game in which the Mountain Hawks never led, Lafayette tallied the first 10 points of the contest and scored just as time expired in the second quarter to take a 13-6 lead into halftime. Senior wide receiver Jorge Portorreal’s four-yard touchdown catch with 1:54 left in the third quarter tied the game at 13-13 but those were the final points Lehigh’s offense scored on the day. A Lafayette touchdown early in the fourth quarter secured the school’s second straight win in The Rivalry and gave the Leopards their first win at home against Lehigh since 2006.
