Game Preview

Often referred to as the “Akron Holy War,” this rivalry between the Fighting Irish of STVM and the Knights of Hoban has always proven to be a game to remember year in and year out. The rivalry was renewed after a 20 year absence in 1996 and since then it has been played at a neutral site due to the large crowds. The winner of this rivalry gains possession of the Ancient Order of Hibernians Shillelagh trophy.
