Why this game is special: This is the nation's 12th oldest high
school football rivalry. The teams first played in 1893. This is
the most important game these teams will play all season. Vineland
and Millville will be judged in large part on how they play today.
Vineland leads the series 63-55-19. The Fighting Clan has won three
straight, including 32-20 last year.
