For the 61st time the city of Abilene is split in support by a set of railroad tracks. Those to the north side of the railroad support Abilene, those to the south support Cooper. Each year, the two teams meet for one football game, known as the “Crosstown Showdown”. Once a year, Shotwell Stadium fills up one side blue, the other side gold. The rivalry between the two schools goes back to 1961, and since then Cooper leads the series with a 35-22-1 record versus Abilene Eagles. In the 2020 Crosstown Showdown, Cooper took the victory 30-20.
