SAN MARCOS – Students from the University of Texas at San Antonio and Texas State University are already dishing shade ahead of the H-E-B sponsored I-35 Showdown on Saturday.

Students have feuded on social media and others have paid homage to their respective team displaying banners with competitive sayings outside of their apartments.

The Bobcats will host the Roadrunners on Saturday at Bobcat Stadium and students have been hyping up the rivalry that "isn't really a rivalry" according to both sides.

See what students are saying on social media ahead of the I-35 Showdown.
