In Texas, there is nothing bigger than high school football. And, in Abilene, there is nothing bigger than the rivalry that the Abilene High Eagles and Cooper Cougars have when it comes to football. The rivalry that dates back to over 50 years, practicality shuts down the entire town.
It’s time for another showdown, and while the Cooper Cougars hold the series lead over Abilene High at 31-21-1, the games never disappoint.
Trust me, I’ve been to several of these games over the years, and getting a ticket on game day is next to impossible.
