(WJW) — FOX 8’s award-winning Friday Night Touchdown is back for its 27th season and better than ever.

Week #8 of Friday Night Touchdown airs this Friday, October 6 at 11 p.m.

The polls are closed and the next FOX 8 Game of the Week of the 2023 season is Clearview at Columbia.

It’s a battle for first place in the Lorain County League.

Columbia (7-0) has won the last three meetings against Clearview (6-1), and the Raiders have also won their last 18 regular season games dating back to 2021.

The Clippers are just one point away from also being undefeated.

Clearview’s only loss came on a last second touchdown at Lakewood way back in Week #2.

Both teams are in position to possibly clinch an OHSAA Playoff spot with a win on Friday.

Join P.J. Ziegler, Ken Carman, John Telich, the Commissioner Dan Coughlin, and new addition John Sabol, every Friday night for 30 minutes of highlights and analysis from the biggest high school football games across Northeast Ohio.

Each week during the 2023 high school football regular season we will nominate four great match-ups for our FOX 8 Game of the Week.

We will announce the winning game live every Thursday night on FOX 8 News at 10 p.m.
