The Battle of the Ravine is a college rivalry game played annually by Henderson State University and Ouachita Baptist University. The football rivalry game is the oldest rivalry game in NCAA Division II.[1][2] The current, full title is the "Southern Bancorp Battle of the Ravine".[3]

In its earliest days, the game was played on Thanksgiving Day, but now it is played as the last game on each team's schedule. It is a unique rivalry in that the two schools located in Arkadelphia, Arkansas are across the street from each other and the visiting team walks from their own locker room to the other team's stadium. The series is currently led by Henderson State 42–40–6.
