We've been to a lot of great high school football games over the years. But we have to say, we're pretty excited for this one.
After a close vote, the Eastside Eagles are taking on the Alcovy Tigers in the #Team11 Game of the Week.
Eastside is coming off a game against Newton that featured a ton of offense. It ended in a 41-41 tie.
The Eagles, who finished 7-3 last season, have had success against the Tigers recently, winning the last two matchups.
The Tigers are hoping to turn the tide in their favor. They are looking strong this season, going 2-0 for the first time since 2009. They began their season with two road tests against Duluth and Meadowcreek.
Friday, the Tigers will host the Eagles in their home-opener, which has been dubbed a blackout.
#Team11 will broadcast live on 11Alive from the game at 6 p.m. as well as after the game with all the highlights at 11 p.m.
