Previous Coverage:
I could find no "recent" varsity football games between Claremore and Collinsville. I did find that the two teams played in 1964 and 1965 but didn't have time to do any significant research, so they might have played in other years? ... I just don't know. But fairly certain they haven't played for decades. There have been many JV, JrHi, and Elementary football games between the Cardinals and Zebras. -- Ted Wright 9/22/2012
10/17/2012 Update: Collinsville played Claremore (here) in Sept. 1967 also.
