The long-standing rivalry between Southern Miss and Memphis dates back to October 26, 1935 [1] and is often referred to as the Black and Blue Bowl. This yearly classic garnered its name from the intense competitive nature of the contest, as well as the competing schools' colors: the black of Southern Miss and the blue of Memphis. Both teams are members of Conference USA in the Eastern Division, and the teams play each other every year.[2]
