Separated by 19.1 miles of scenic coastline, longtime crosstown adversaries Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine have come together in an effort to boost their decades-long rivalry with the creation of the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) Cup.
The series serves as an annual scorecard for the NCAA-sponsored athletic contests between the Lions and Waves, and challenges each institution to rise above the other within the West Coast Conference.
LMU and Pepperdine are represented by 13 of their intercollegiate athletic teams through both regular and postseason competitions over the course of the academic calendar.
One point is awarded for both home and neutral-site wins, including conference championships; however, 1.5 points is earned for road victories.
Teams scheduled to compete head-to-head during the regular season include baseball, men's and women's basketball, women's soccer, men's and women's tennis, women's volleyball, sand volleyball and men's water polo. The winner of the baseball series will receive one point, rather than each game counting separately.
For men's and women's cross country and men's golf, the point will be awarded on the basis of overall finish at their respective WCC postseason championships.
The university with the highest point total accumulated throughout the year will be named PCH Cup champion and awarded the PCH Cup.
Points will be awarded as follows:
1 point for a home victory
1.5 points for a road victory
1 point for a neutral site victory
.5 point for a tie
