Mid-County Madness is the annual high school football game between Texas 4A District 20 teams, the Port Neches-Groves Indians and the Nederland Bulldogs. Since 1925, the Indians and Bulldogs have battled for the bragging rights of the area nestled between Beaumont and Port Arthur, Texas, known as Mid-Jefferson County or "Mid County." During game week, football in these small towns of Port Neches, Groves, and Nederland, Texas is backed with a level of enthusiasm that matches any area in the state. Tickets typically sell out days before Friday night and nearly 1500 fans show up each year to watch Port Neches-Groves and Nederland showdown.

History

By winning 15 consecutive games—1969 through 1983—the Port Neches-Groves Indians have established a firm lead in winning percentage (55% to Nederland's 38%) in the Mid-County series. Counting a couple of ties before that 15-game win streak, the Indians actually went 19 straight years without being defeated by the Bulldogs. While Nederland has struggled to produce a streak anywhere close in longevity to the stretch of Port Neches-Groves during the 1970s & 80s, the Bulldogs have had the upper hand in the past decade and a half, having won 11 of the past 17 years, though never more than three in a row. Nederland's longest win streak extended four straight years, with the last of those four occurring in the Bulldogs' memorable 1957 state AAA championship year under head coach Emmett McKenzie. As of the end of the 2011 regular season, Port Neches-Groves has won 48 rounds of "Mid-County Madness," as compared to Nederland's 33 victories.
