Pomona-Pitzer football defeats cross-campus rivals CMS 37-10.

Pomona-Pitzer football beat hometown rivals Claremont-Mudd-Scripps 37-10 today at Claremont McKenna's Zinda Field. That means the Sagehens maintain possession of the Peace Pipe after defeating CMS 24-10 in last year's game.

Pomona, Pitzer, Claremont McKenna, Scripps and Harvey Mudd colleges are all part of the Claremont Colleges, a unique consortium of five undergraduate and two graduate institutions.

Pomona and Claremont Men’s College (which later became Claremont McKenna) competed as a single Claremont Colleges team from 1947 to 1958. The cross-campus rivalry began in 1959 after separate athletic departments and intercollegiate programs were started. Pitzer College opened in 1964 and eventually joined Pomona students to form Pomona-Pitzer teams.
