Week #3 of Friday Night Touchdown is upon us and there are some very good matchups as Fox 8 crews will travel Northeast Ohio, far and wide, to bring you coverage of 30 games for the show.
The featured game of the week as a result of a landslide of votes on Fox8.com is Brooklyn at Wickliffe. The Hurricanes travel to face the Blue Devils. The game will get extended highlights in the show.
Two big schools will tangle in Euclid, but this matchup features only one win between them. The 1-1 Mentor Cards are at Sparky Dibiasio Stadium to meet the winless Panthers.
Mentor, the #5 team in the FOX 8 Top 8 will try to regroup after a very tough loss to St. Ignatius in Week 2.
The #2 team in the poll and defending state champion, Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary, will be hosting Woodridge, while the team the Fighting Irish handled last week, Walsh Jesuit, plays host to Columbus Bishop Watterson.
In what some jokingly call “The Landlord against the Tenant,” Benedictine will play the Bedford Bearcats at Bearcat Stadium.
The Tupa brothers of Brecksville travel to Hudson to meet the Explorers in a battle of 2-0 teams. The Bees shut down North Royalton last week while Hudson handled Uniontown Lake.
Also, some games delayed on Thursday night because of the rain are playing Friday.
We hope you join us on FOX 8 at 11:00 p.m. Friday night for Week #3 of Friday Night Touchdown.
