The George Washington University: Fan Zone

Dating back to legendary debates on the Virginia House of Burgesses, George Mason and George Washington are two of the most distinguished Founding Fathers. Political rivals and longtime friends, the two had estates overlooking the Potomac River only miles away. With George Mason authoring the Virginia Declaration of Rights, the precursor to the United States Bill of Rights, and George Washington leading the Continental Army to a victory in the Revolutionary War, the two men are woven into the fabric of American history.

Today, Washington and Mason are the namesakes to two of the top athletic programs in the Atlantic 10 Conference. As the schools face off as conference opponents, the budding rivalry is set to become one of the best in the nation. The Revolutionary Rivalry is the year-long series between GW and George Mason athletics. The two departments have pledged to compete for the Tri-Corner Hat Trophy. Between the Colonial Army and the Patriot Platoon, this year's rivalry is primed to be one for the history books...
