BATTLE OF THE BOULEVARD

In 2006, the Student Government Associations at Belmont University and Lipscomb University implemented a tangible prize and competition to reinvigorate a rivalry that began more than 50 years prior.  A customized Battle of the Boulevard street-sign trophy was awarded each year to the winner of the alternating host's Men's Basketball game winner.  In 2017, both SGA's, in collaboration with both schools' Athletics Marketing Staffs, expanded and enhanced the program to include all sports competitions where the Bruins and Bisons face off against each other in the age-old rivalry.  

Battle of the Boulevard - Street Sign Trophy Rules:

Each time the Bruins/Bisons compete in any sport within the boundaries of Nashville, TN, a single point will be awarded to the winner.  A tie (soccer, golf, XC) will result in .5 point for each program.  The school accumulating the most points in an academic/athletic year will win the trophy.  In the event of a tie in overall total points, the previous year's winner will retain possession of the trophy.

Year-By-Year Winners:

 2017-2018 - TBD
