Holy Cross vs. Jesuit is one of the oldest rivalries in the south, having first played in 1922. At one time, this intense match-up drew 35,000 fans to watch it and still delivers crowds upwards of 15,000-20,000 fans to Tad Gormley Stadium.

The 100th meeting of these two historic teams is slated to be nothing short of EPIC. That’s why GARS Network TV is going to be there to livestream the game to it’s facebook live page. Tune in on Friday to watch the game live from the Big Easy.
