The Revolutionary Rivalry is upon us again ... George Mason hosts George Washington Saturday night at Eagle Bank Arena.

To say the rivalry has been one-sided to this point doesn't do the Colonials justice. In the 22 previous meetings, GW posts a dominating record of 19-3.

Things may be different this year. The Patriots are currently red hot, winners of 6 of their last 7 games and are currently in first place in the Atlantic 10.

George Washington meanwhile is only 2-4 in conference play and resides in the bottom half of the standings.
