The Series
The rivalry that the Tigers and Sagehens share dates back to 1895, which marks the longest-running rivalry in Southern California. Overall Occidental has won 60 of those games, including the last six years. The Sagehens have come out victorious 48 times with their last win recorded in 2003. During the history of this battle the teams have tied three times, the last (6-6) in 1947. As for the largest margins of victory, Occidental won 70-16 in 1988 while Pomona-Pitzer won 52-0 in 1903. The only other rivalries on the West Coast that are older than this one are Stanford-Cal (1892), and the Oregon-Oregon State (1894).


The Drum
In 1941 the Alumni Associations from both schools got together and came up with the idea of playing for “The Drum,” which is awarded to the winner of the annual Pomona-Pitzer-Occidental football game.
