So maybe it was harder to find memorable moments in this series than I imagined. When in doubt, start at the beginning. The first matchup between the two happened back in 1933 when the Wildcats took home a 46-27 victory. No, that isn't a football school, but a score that Bulldogs fans have become accustomed to when playing the Cats—a surefire blowout.
