USA TODAY High School Sports selected five high school football rivalries in each state and Washington, D.C. after more than a month of conversations with local media and other state/school officials with high school football expertise. From there, the fans will decide which rivalry emerges from a list of 255 – more than 100 more rivalries overall than a year ago.
This year’s best rivalry competition will end Dec. 18 after three rounds of voting. The 51 state winners – each state plus D.C. – advance to one of eight regionals. The winners of the eight regions, along with two wild cards, move onto a final round of 10.
The winner receives $5,000 to be split evenly between the two schools, with other cash prizes going to all of the national finalists.
