Football Rivalry Game schedule for 2020 season

Reedsburg and Baraboo will meet for the 133rd time on the gridiron in Week 7 of the 2020 season

For many years we have kept a list of the most-played high school football rivalries in the state of Wisconsin, focusing on those that have been played at least 70 times. Certainly there are other outstanding rivalries that haven't met that criteria, and some rivalries that we do not have specific history on (such as Edgerton vs. Stoughton, Janesville vs. Beloit, and others).

As we gear up for the 2020 season, below are a list of the rivalry match-ups with at least 70 previous meetings for the upcoming high school football campaign.
