The closest thing we have to a rival is Cincy and Houston. Cincy because of history (mostly BBall).

Houston because of having recently played actual games that matter to both programs the last few years.

How many straight years did UAB wipe the floor with us before we finally won again?

I think it went up to 6 or 7. They had that damn QB that never seemed to graduate. What was his name, he owned us, and most of them were DeAngelo years too. Then it was Joe Webb that beat on us for a few years after that

Darrell Hackney...he definitely crammed 7 years of football into 4 seasons.
Remember when DeAngelo went to media days and kidded him about being bigger than our linemen!!

I'm okay with something river related to informally call the game, but no need for a trophy. Those should just be for conference titles or bowl games in my opinion.

Nothing personal but I really don't like that name and don't feel the two team are big rivals at this time. Perhaps that changes over time.

But when we play Tulane on Friday it will be the 34th game in the series, which will tie with Cincinnati as our most played opponent in the AAC, 6th most all-time. Being that we play Tulane every year now as they are a division foe, next year they will be alone at the top as our most played AAC team. We are by far Tulane's most played AAC opponent and have played consistently since 1978.

We could even make this a trophy game and have some sort of bronze river boat trophy.

I tweeted this to Dr Rudd and the Tulane President, both athletic pages, both football pages, Coach Norvell and Coach Fritz, and the Tulane Athletic Director. What say you?

We only have 3 opponents with a rivalry name to the game and we do not regularly play any of them.

Black and Blue Bowl - Southern Miss
Battle for the Bones - UAB
Paint Bucket Bowl - Arkansas State

I do wish we could bring back the Paint Bucket Trophy when we start the 4 game series with Arkansas State in a few years. Maybe if the right person hears about it...
Rumble on the River or River Rumble Trophy goes to the winning team until the next meeting.

The best idea (to me) is the street-corner signs of Beale and Bourbon.

RE: Old Man River Rivalry - Memphis vs Tulane
I have said it before and I say it again, when Tulane becomes good again this is a natural rivalry. I hated the league dropped division play, because it meant that Tulane might not be an annual game (therefore not a road game in New Orleans every other year). Lets make it a trophy game and keep them on the schedule.
