The Dartmouth–New Hampshire rivalry is an intrastate college sports rivalry between the Dartmouth Big Green and New Hampshire Wildcats. The rivalry is best known for the football and ice hockey games between the two schools. The schools' football teams compete for the Granite Bowl trophy and the men's ice hockey teams compete for the RiverStone Cup.[1][2] The two schools also meet in other sports, including field hockey and basketball.[3][4]

Football[edit]

The two teams first met in 1901 and have played regularly since then. The longest gap between games was 22 years, between 1934 and 1956. Dartmouth was initially dominant, winning 17 of the first 19 games. Since 1976, however, UNH has won or tied every game.[5] Dartmouth was dominant in the early years of the rivalry. Since 2001 UNH has dominated the series, scoring at least 42 points and winning by at least 21 points six games in a row. Before the 2009 game, the series was even at 17–17–2. UNH won 44–14. The next game between the two teams took place in 2014, which they won 52–19 to lead 19–17–2.[6][7]

Ice hockey[edit]

The New Hampshire Wildcats men's ice hockey and the Dartmouth Big Green men's ice hockey teams play each other once a year. They are the only Division I college hockey teams in New Hampshire. The two teams recruit from some of the same New England junior hockey teams.[2] The game is held at the neutral Verizon Wireless Arena.[2] Though the event is located in Manchester, part of the way between UNH's campus in Durham and Dartmouth's campus in Hanover, the crowd is typically dominated by UNH fans.[8] UNH leads the series 6–3–1 after Dartmouth won the "Battle for the RiverStone Cup X".[9] The event is sponsored by insurance company RiverStone Resources of Manchester.[10]
