The Tradition Continues - The 53rd Emotion Bowl
Published: 9/22/2017 11:41:25 PM

Skyline and Idaho Falls are set to battle once again in this storied rivalry. What you need to know before the big game.

Follow Matt on Twitter: @IdahoSportsMatt

If there is one game each season that both Skyline and Idaho Falls would say they had to win, regardless of the outcomes of their other games, they would each say "The Emotion Bowl".

It's understandable too. With an Emotion Bowl win comes a full 365 days of bragging rights. Skyline has held on to those bragging rights for three straight seasons (with the blue goal posts to show for it). Skyline will go for a fourth straight win in the series on Saturday afternoon at Ravsten Stadium.

Idaho Falls, on the other hand, is sick of seeing baby blue goal posts. Their senior class has only seen blue on the goal posts, dating back to when they were freshmen. The Tigers would love nothing more than to be the ones to rush the field and spray paint the posts in an orange shade of their choice.

Both teams enter the contest with a 2-2 record and both teams are on current two-game winning streaks. Both teams went to the playoffs last season and both teams has big expectations for this season. Skyline leads the all-time series 30-22 and has won six of the last seven Emotion Bowl contests. 

But despite what we know about both teams and what we all think may happen on Saturday afternoon, don't be surprised if something wild happens. Don't be caught off guard for any outcome. When it comes to the Emotion Bowl, the mantra is to "Expect The Unexpected".

The 53rd Emotion Bowl kicks off of Saturday at 2:00 pm MT from Ravsten Stadium in Idaho Falls. Our LIVE video broadcast of the Emotion Bowl will begin at 1:40 pm MT. To watch the 53rd Emotion Bowl, click HERE.
