With over 1,000 schools using VNN sites, it’s awesome to see all the different traditions, rivalries, and big matches happening in our network. Going forward, we’re going to be spotlighting our favorites alongside the VNN content you’re already reading.

Starting off, we have Arkansas’ Benton High School and its annual early season showcase the Salt Bowl.


Started in 1999, the Salt Bowl is the annual Saline County rivalry between the Benton Panthers and cross-town rivals, the Bryant Hornets. There’s only 6 miles in between the schools, so it gets heated! The Hornets have had the upper hand in recent years winning 8 consecutive games.

Big drama last year–  the game ended in a 14-14 tie, giving rise to this year’s theme, #Unfinished Business. This year’s game will be held at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, AR with a kick-off tonight at 7:30pm.


For more info on the game, or if you’d like to go – get tickets at the Salt Bowl website — Salt Bowl 2015
