The Smartlink Day of Rivals is an annual college lacrosse double-header event played in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, between two pairs of traditional rivals. The event takes place in M&T Bank Stadium, the home field of the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League. The first event took place on April 11, 2009, between the Johns Hopkins–Maryland and ArmyNavy games, the two most intense and storied lacrosse rivalries.[1] The 2010 event featured the same match-ups with a total attendance of 20,911.[2]

Johns Hopkins declined to extend its contract with the event for the 2011 edition, and will instead play Maryland at Homewood Field.[3] Similarly, the Army–Navy game will be held at Annapolis in 2011 instead.[3]
