Known as the “Coffee Pot” game, this rivalry dates to 1926. Coffee County vs. Tullahoma played every year except for a two-year break during WWII. The rivalry began with the winning team tearing down the other team’s goalposts. Tullahoma leads the all-time series with 62 wins. Two schools only separated by 10 miles adds another level of intensity to a historic rivalry. Coffee County will be looking to bounce back after suffering a large defeat to Tullahoma last year.
