Paige Sherrard: My Governor’s Cup Prediction


The Battle for the Governor’s Cup originated in 1912 as a football game played between the two big in-state Universities in Kentucky; the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville. Although the rivalry was short lived in the early days and not very exciting, as UK held Louisville scoreless in the first six meetings, former UK player & University of Louisville Head Football Coach, Howard Schellenberger renewed the rivalry in 1994. And it’s been nothing but a War since.

Brad Jones: My Governor’s Cup Prediction


 

The struggles and hardships endured in offseason conditioning programs, spring practices, and training camp become lessons learned for the winner of one of Kentucky’s most famous battles, the Battle for the Governor’s Cup. For the loser, these same struggles and hardships seem like wasted effort. Regardless of each teams season outlook, this game is the most important. A win against the rival marks a successful season regardless of the final record.  Currently, we are less than a week away from the start of the college football season and the latest installment of this rivalry. Here are my views on the game:

Justin Renck: My Governor’s Cup prediction


I have had the countdown to 3:30 pm on September 2nd in my phone for months now. There is excitement on so many levels. UofL football is starting, we play UK first, and I am finally back in Louisville full-time after being in Auburn for the last 4 years (which when it comes to football season, I can’t complain about being down there!).

I bought season tickets in the upper level when they built the expansion for the 2010 season. I was still in Auburn for another couple of years, and I only made it to about 4 games in the past 2 years, but I knew I was purchasing them for when I got back because we would be back to being good again and I didn’t want to be on a wait list. That time has come, and it worked out perfectly.

Now, about this game…
