The Battle for the Ol' School Bell was an old rivalry between the Troy State Trojans (now the Troy Trojans) and the Jacksonville State Gamecocks when the two schools started playing together in Division II.[1][2][3][4][5][6] The series continued as the Trojans moved to the FCS, with the Gamecocks moving to the FCS soon after. The series came to a halt when Troy moved to what is now the FBS.[7][8] However, with rumors of Jax State considering a possible move to the FBS, the rivalry may be renewed again. The idea for a school bell trophy stemmed from the two schools' common origins as teachers' colleges.[9]

History[edit]

The two teams first met in 1924 in Troy, Alabama. The last game was played in 2001.[10] Jacksonville State leads the series 32–29–2. Troy has won the last seven games of the series, while also going 12–3 since 1983 against the Gamecocks.
