The Grand Canyon Rivalry[1][2](also known as the HintonBurdick Grand Canyon Trophy Game[3]) is an American college football rivalry between the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and the Southern Utah Thunderbirds. The HintonBurdick Grand Canyon Trophy is presented to the winner of the game. The Thunderbirds are the current holder of the trophy.

Series history[edit]

Between 1982 and 2011, Northern Arizona and Southern Utah played fifteen times as non-conference opponents. Since 1970, Northern Arizona had been members of the Big Sky Conference, playing at a Division 1 level. Southern Utah's division and conference affiliation fluctuated during this time. However, in 2011, the Big Sky conference expanded to 13 football playing members, and Southern Utah University was extended an all-sports invitation. Since then, the Lumberjacks and Thunderbirds have competed every year. In 2012, the HintonBurdick Grand Canyon Trophy was introduced as a traveling trophy that would go to the winner.[4] The trophy was first won by Southern Utah by a score of 35–29.[5]
