There are rivalries, and then there is the Crosstown Classic. 

The annual showdown between the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University is one of the most heated and contentious matchups in all of sports.

Xavier Gear -

Cincinnati Gear -

From the Huggins handshake-less finish to a cowbell from the stands, I don’t think that’s what SNL Skit meant when they were asking for more cowbell. There is nothing quite like the rivalry between the two schools separated by a mere 2.7 miles.

It is my favorite rivalry in college basketball (sorry, UNC-Duke) and it returns on December 10th when the Cincinnati Bearcats battle the Xavier Musketeers in the 90th edition of the Crosstown Shootout. And while Cincinnati holds the 51-38 series lead. Xavier has won 11 of the past 15 contests.
