The Oct. 20 football game kicks off the first Mayor’s Cup competition between Augustana and the University of Sioux Falls (USF), sponsored by First National Bank.

“It will bring out the best in education, it will bring out the best in stewardship, it will bring out the best in teamwork, and, yes, the best in competition,” Mayor Mike Huether said at a press conference on Monday.

There are 19 points available for each school to win.

It is not only an all-sport competition, but also based on student-athlete GPAs at each school. All students will have a chance to participate by donating in the school blood drives.
