The 59th Annual Causeway Classic

UC Davis' longest standing football rivarly continues next year on home turf. It seems that the division of a concrete highway known as "The Causeway" is enough to ignite such a heated rivalry. This is a game that is played on pure emotion and can make or break a season. Be there as the Aggies look to start a new winning streak at the 59th Annual Causeway Classic.

The Aggie's hold a lifetime series record of 40-18 against the Hornets.

The Tradition of the Causeway Classic and the Yolo Causeway between the two universities

The Yolo Causeway is a 3.2-mile long elevated highway viaduct on Interstate 80 that crosses the Yolo Bypass floodplain and connects the cities of Sacramento, California and Davis, California. Work on the Yolo Causeway was completed in 1916 and for the first time allowing year-round travel between the State Capital and San Francisco despite the area’s regular floods. This causeway, which became part of I-80, was California’s first highway project financed by the sale of highway bonds. The current Yolo Causeway was built in 1962.

The Causeway Classic football game was established in 1954 between the University of California, Davis and California State University of Sacramento. Since 1961, the winning team has received the Causeway Carriage, an authentic 19th century carriage, as the trophy. Today, the Carriage is no longer exchanged between the two universities; instead, an authentic core of one the many pillars that hold up the Yolo Causeway is awarded to the winner.
