The Edmund Orgill Trophy is awarded to the winner of the annual football game between Rhodes College and Sewanee: The University of the South. The rivalry between Rhodes and Sewanee was reported by Sports Illustrated in 2012 to be "the longest continuously running rivalry in college football in the Southern United States"[1] – though the first game was played in 1899, the teams have not met in every succeeding season. The Orgill Trophy was added to the series in 1954. Rhodes currently leads the trophy series 32–27–1, and is tied with Sewanee in the overall series. The 2016 contest was a 36–21 Rhodes victory at Sewanee in which the Rhodes offense set a conference record for total offense with 684. Most recently, Rhodes defeated Sewanee 28–10 to retain the trophy for a record sixth consecutive year.
