First played in 1887 between the then Second Division of St. John's College (Fordham Prep's original name) and Xavier High School, the Turkey Bowl is one of the oldest high school football rivalries in the United States.
Sports Illustrated and USA Today have highlighted the game as one of the premier Thanksgiving Day games in high school football in the country. The Turkey Bowl is the oldest inter-scholastic athletic rivalry in all of New York City. The New York Post called it one of the "can't miss" events in New York City high school sports.
