CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Two rival Coastal Bend football teams will compete off the field Thursday morning as they attempt to eat as much ice cream as possible in a blizzard-eating contest.

They're calling it the Clash of Titans and it's all happening at 6 a.m. at the Dairy Queen on Alamo Street in Refugio between Refugio High School and Odem High School football players.

A few players and coaches from both the Refugio Bobcats and Odem Owls will be present.

Organizers of the event say its a great opportunity to promote both of the teams.

Plus, it's also going to a good cause.

When anyone purchases a Blizzard at participating Dairy Queen locations in the Coastal Bend and in the Rio Grande Valley on Thursday, $1 or more goes to benefit Driscoll Children's Hospital.

Organizers say the money will help provide high quality care for the children of South Texas.
