The idea was developed more than 10 years ago and was created to build the rivalry in athletics competition between UTSA and Texas State while bringing added attention to collegiate sports in Central Texas, especially within the I-35 Corridor. Historically, a trophy was awarded to the winner of the men’s basketball series, but starting with the 2007-08 season, the rivalry was expanded to an all-sports competition. The series looks to provide a sense of pride from each university's alumni, build school spirit among each institution's student body and increase attendance at sporting events between the two schools.
How the Series Works
The competition between UTSA and Texas State has been enhanced with the creation of the I-35 Orange vs. Maroon Rivalry Series. A trophy will be awarded to the school with the most points based on matchups between the two universities in common sports throughout the academic year. At the conclusion of the final scheduled athletics event between the two schools each year, the winner of that year's I-35 Orange vs. Maroon Rivalry Series will receive a trophy presented bearing the inscription of the annual winners. The winning institution will retain possession of the trophy for one year until the award presentation the following year.
How the Point System Works
Texas State and UTSA will compete for the the point totals listed below. The point system will be based on the following:
· The winner of head-to-head match-ups during Southland Conference play only in each sport will receive two points for each win.
· For sports that do not play a round-robin regular season, a higher finish in Southland Conference Tournaments or Championships will determine the two points.
· If round-robin teams should meet in conference tournaments, an extra two points shall be rewarded.
· An extra point will be given to the school for any road win.
· If the contest is played at a neutral site, only two points will be awarded.
· All Southland Conference Tournaments are considered neutral sites.
· In the sport of baseball and softball, the winner of the three-game series will be awarded four points with a bonus point for a road series victory.
· Should the two schools meet in postseason play (i.e. NCAA Tournament) the winner shall receive two additional points for that sport.
Each year at the conclusion of the final scheduled athletic event between the two institutions, the winner of that year's I-35 Orange vs. Maroon Rivalry Series will receive a trophy bearing the inscription of the annual winners. The winning institution will retain possession of the trophy for a period of one year, until the award presentation of the following year.
Each school and its student-athletes will conduct themselves in a way demonstrating good sportsmanship throughout all competition. Any forms of bad sportsmanship will not be tolerated and could be deemed a loss of points toward the rivalry series. In perception and practice, sportsmanship is defined as those qualities which are characterized by generosity and genuine concern for others.
· Play fair, take loss or defeat without complaint or victory without gloating.
· Treat others as you wish to be treated.
· Respect others and one's self.
· Impose self-control, be courteous and gracefully accept results of one's actions.
· Display ethical behavior by being good (character) and doing right (action).
· Be a good citizen.
