Rivalry Week Sees Alumni Enter The Fray

It’s #SuperBowlLII this weekend… which more importantly means it’s rivalry week in BUCS balling!

Traditionally in University Football, Super Bowl weekend sees local rivals go head to head – on the premise the shorter trip will also allow the players to get back home in time to watch the big game!

This Rivalry Week we saw some alumni entering the fray north of the wall, as Glasgow University and Edinburgh Napier prepare for a showdown – where not only the rivalry, but also pole position in the conference, is at stake:

Napier University themselves kicked it off, promoting the event, with an order of shade on the side:


But the Glasgow Alumni came back with a puntastic response:



Rallying to defend the Knights’ honour, Edinburgh Napier parried:



But the Tigers alumni were ready to bite back:


Some great, well-humoured back and forth ahead of this weekend’s crucial match up!

What game from this weekend are you most looking forward to? Has the tier system taken some spice out of it, or are there new rivalries emerging?

Let us know!
