This weekend's Game of the Week is slated for Friday, October 8, at 7:30pm as Parkersburg takes on Parkersburg South. This game is considered by many to be the biggest rivalry game in West Virginia.
The Great American Rivalry Series emerged from a desire to celebrate the cultural phenomenon of Friday night high school football, shining the spotlight on classic gridiron clashes where expectations are sky high and die-hard fans abound. Since 2004, the Series has spotlighted 161 games and 116 unique rivalries in 34 states. New states we'll be visiting this fall are Maine, Utah, Vermont, and Arkansas, bringing the total by the end of the season to 38 states since the Series began.
