Crosstown Gauntlet

The Crosstown Gauntlet is a year-long all-sport competition between the the two schools.  It started in 2001-02 and was known as the Lexus Gauntlet through 2008-09, with points being awarded to the winner of the season series in each NCAA-sanctioned sport in which both teams compete.  Football, Men's & Women's Basketball, and Women's Volleyball are each worth 10 points; all others are worth 5 points.  For the sports where the two teams do not compete head-to-head (Cross Country and Golf) points are awarded to the team that finishes higher in the Pac-12 Championships.
