Crown Point vs Lowell 

Rensselaer Central vs. Kankakee Valley

The battle for the Old Leather Helmet is, I believe, the longest continuous rivalry game in the state.

Isn’t Whiting/Clark the Battle of 119th?

I believe Highland/Munster is the Battle for the Bridge.

According to a wiki that is titled List of high school football rivalries more than 100 years old

the Logansport vs Peru is the oldest in the state of Indiana

What about South Newton-North Newton?  You can call it the Consolidation Bowl...or Contraction Classic!!!

Conversely, I wish Oregon and Idaho would start a home and home--the Ore-Ida Hashbrown Classic...

Elkhart vs Memorial in the battle of the Mangy Lion.  These 2 combine  next year, so this is the last game between these two city rivals.

It's not much of a rivalry yet, but Ben Davis and Brownsburg has the potential to be a very good one. The Giants actually lead this series, 5-0. 

Year Giants Score Bulldogs Score TIE/OT Location
1980 Ben Davis 35 Brownsburg 7   Brownsburg
1981 Ben Davis 15 Brownsburg 7   BD
2007 Ben Davis 35 Brownsburg 13   BD
2008 Ben Davis 45 Brownsburg 10   Brownsburg
2011 Ben Davis 38 Brownsburg 31 (2OT) BD
2016 Ben Davis 49 Brownsburg 13   Brownsburg

Another fun, albeit unofficial, and infant "rivalry" in week 1 is Pike vs Zionsville. Sectional opponents that are separated by just 7 miles, and have had 3 really good games since they began playing each other week 1 in 2016. Some extra juice in it for the kids this year with the Pike HC coming from Zville.
