You will learn which school's rivalry is so intense that a wedding rehearsal was held in the parking lot to avoid missing the game. You will learn which school has their quarterback bark out signals in Hebrew. You will learn which rivalry had players spending the eve of the game in the homes of opposing players families. A portion of the proceeds goes to Meals On Wheels of Pickens County, South Carolina, where former NFL Coach Sam Wyche has helped greatly with The Dirty Thirty and has turned a great rivalry into a higher cause."
