This year will be the 62nd meeting for the Crosstown Showdown. These two schools separated by a set of railroad tracks have a rivalry that dates back to 1961. Last season, Abilene Cooper won 31-14, which adds another victory to their all-time 36-24-1 series lead. Shotwell Stadium will be filled with fans North of the railroad track wearing black and gold while the fans South of the railroad track will be wearing their blue and red. Can Abilene Cooper extend their win streak to four straight wins, or will Abilene be able to conquer the showdown and walk away with a victory?
