Rivalry with Port Neches-Groves
There is an intense rivalry between the Nederland Bulldogs and the Port Neches-Groves Indians, particularly concerning football. The annual football game between the two schools is more commonly known as "Mid-County Madness." By winning 15 consecutive games—1969 through 1983—the Port Neches-Groves Indians have established a firm lead in winning percentage (57% to Nederland's 43%) in the Mid-County series. Counting a couple of ties before that 15-game win streak, the Indians actually went 19 straight years without being defeated by the Bulldogs. While Nederland has struggled to produce a streak anywhere close in longevity to the stretch of Port Neches-Groves during the 1970s & 80s, the Bulldogs have had the upper hand in the past two decades, having won 15 of the past 21 years, though never more than four in a row. Nederland's longest win streaks have extended four straight years twice, one including the Bulldogs' memorable 1957 state AAA championship year under head coach Emmett McKenzie and the second from 2010 to 2013. As of the game during the 2013 regular season, PN-G has won 48 rounds of "Mid-County Madness," as compared to Nederland's 35 victories with 7 ties.
