Horns and Bucs to renew their rivalry in the 409Sports Blitz Game of The Week!

47th edition of the Rice Bowl is the 409Sports Blitz Game of The Week

BEAUMONT, Texas — A good old fashion rivalry will serve as the 409Sports Blitz Game of The Week! 

Friday night East Chambers (1-0) will host Hamshire-Fannett (1-0) in the 47th edition of the Rice Bowl.

Last year the Longhorns protected their home turf, walking away with 26-19 win. This year the scene will switch to Winnie at East Chambers' Buccaneer Stadium.

The series between the two communities powered by the rice industry, started in 1961. Though it should be noted the rivalry started even further back than that, when Hamshire and Fannett were separate high schools fielding their own teams.
