Tyler (KETK) — KETK Sports Director Danny Elzner is starting his 21st season of Friday Football Fever.
The Game of the Week will have the Longview Lobos playing the Lufkin Panthers Friday night at Abe Martin Stadium.
This will be the 75th meeting between these two East Texas powerhouses.
The series is all even.
Longview has won 35 times, Lufkin has won 35 times and there have been four ties.
"Anytime Longview and Lufkin play it's going to be a good football game regardless of records and preseason hype," Longview coach John King told KETK. "It's a difficult task to travel to Abe Martin Stadium to play those guys down there and open up the season."
"Who knows?" King added. "We might see each other down the road in the playoffs."
KETK will be live from Lufkin Friday night at 5:00, 6:00, 10:00 and 11:00.
Watch Friday Football Fever during the 10pm KETK news Friday night.
And watch Friday Football Fever Overtime at 11pm on FOX 51 Friday night.
