The Peddie School and Blair Academy represent the oldest prep school rivalry in New Jersey. Except for 1944, when a polio outbreak at Peddie canceled the game, the Peddie Falcons and Blair Buccaneers have faced off every year since 1903. On Peddie's campus, the rivalry has spurred the much-anticipated Peddie-Blair Week, the most spirited week of the year.
