The River City Rumble is a season-long series between Jacksonville's two Division I institutions - Jacksonville University and the University of North Florida - that was founded in fall 2005.

It was officially named and announced on Jan. 23, 2006, at a press conference on the UNF campus.

The University of North Florida and Jacksonville University battle annually for the "Old Wooden Barrel," which is awarded to the school with the most victories over the other during a school year.

The "Old Wooden Barrel" will be housed in the winning school's athletic department until the conclusion of the final event of the following year.

How The River City Rumble Works...

Jacksonville and North Florida both field teams in 14 sports (men's and women's soccer, volleyball, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball, sand volleyball, women's indoor and outdoor track and men's and women's golf).

Each time the Dolphins and Ospreys face each other, the game will count toward the River City Rumble standings. The exception is individual sports (i.e. cross country, track and golf), where the team that finishes higher at the ASUN Conference Championship will earn one win for its school.

The school with most wins will receive the "Old Wooden Barrel" at the end of the year. Any tie in the standings will keep the trophy at the previous year's winner.

*Following JU baseball's 5-2 victory over North Florida on 3/31/18, the Dolphins clinched the 2017-18 River City Rumble title.*
