The rivalry between Louisville Male High School and duPont Manual High School goes back more than one century, making it one of the oldest in the state of Kentucky. And the mutual hatred between the schools is so high that during a recent basketball game, even the mascots got into a tussle.

As you'll see in the video below, the Male Bulldog begins the confrontation by charging at the Manuel Ram. The Ram proceeds to dropkick his counterpart, and then things really get ugly.

With the students going wild, the Bulldog and the Ram hit the deck, rolling around and trading punches. After about 20 seconds the fight is finally broken up.
