The “Battle for the Pickle Barrel” is a head-to-head competition between the Columbus State University and Georgia College athletic departments. The competition is broken down into four categories; head-to-head meetings, grade point average of individual sports, money raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Peach Belt Conference Commissioner’s Cup Standings.

The winner of each head-to-head meeting in volleyball, women’s soccer, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, men’s and women’s tennis and softball will receive one point. In addition, each team that finishes higher at the PBC Championships in men’s and women’s cross country and men’s golf will receive a point towards the final standings.

The second part of the equation is GPA in common sports between the two schools. Those sports are women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and softball. The school with the highest GPA in each sport will receive one point to the standings.

The final two parts are institutional based. Whichever school raises more money towards the Make-A-Wish Foundation will receive a point while the highest finisher in the final PBC Commissioner’s Cup Standings will also get a point.

At the end of the year, the standings will be tallied and whoever has the most points will win the “Battle for the Pickle Barrel”. The winning school will receive a full fall catered meal by the Pickle Barrel and will be served by the opposing school’s athletic director and/or staff.
