Idaho Falls and Skyline look to face off for the 58th time in the Emotion Bowl. The first match up between these two schools being in 1966 when Skyline broke off from Idaho Falls. Once the schools split up, it only left one football field in the town, which started one of the biggest football rivalries in the state of Idaho. Skyline still leads the series with a record of 34-23 after Idaho Falls broke up a seven-year win streak last year. The school spirit leading up to game day helps bring all the hype around this game while students decorate the football field, both sides of the stands, and even their school to cheer on their football team. With not a seat in the stadium, what school will be able to paint the goal post their school colors on September 24th when Idaho Falls and Skyline face off yet again?
