Anticipation builds ahead of Frontier Bowl

More than 100 people waited in line Monday morning outside the Harlandale ISD Athletics Office to be the first ones to buy tickets for the 54th annual Frontier Bowl.

Known as the biggest rivalry in the South Side, the Frontier Bowl is a longstanding tradition for families in Harlandale ISD. Fellow alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff began camping out since Saturday afternoon.

Tickets officially went on sale Monday at 8:30 a.m. with two long lines representing each school: Harlandale HS and McCollum HS.

Debra Pebbles Rivas and Joann Perez were among those who camped out to continue their own personal tradition. They have been the first ones to purchase tickets in support of Harlandale HS for five years in a row.

“It’s tradition. As a Class of 1986 graduate 31 years ago, I’ve been coming ever since,” Rivas said. “I’m a two-time cancer survivor, and to have the opportunity to come again another year is a blessing.”

According to everyone waiting in line, Frontier Bowl is a great time for family and friends to come together and have a great time, especially during the Tailgate.

“I’m very excited,” McCollum graduate of 1999 Jessica Rodriguez said. “I’m hoping for a big McCollum win! My children are now seniors, so it’d be great if we won.”

The HHS Indians and MHS Cowboys will face each other once again on Friday, Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Memorial Stadium.

Good luck to both teams!
