Buchtel Griffins (6-3, 5-0) vs. Firestone (6-3, 5-0)

7 p.m., Infocision Stadium

Only one of these two teams have made the OHSAA playoffs - Buchtel, but that doesn't matter to Griffins coach Ricky Powers.  Powers only has one thing on his mind right now - winning the City Series crown.  He has the horses to do it in quarterback Steven Parker and threats at the wideout position including the highly touted Corey Smith.

But Firestone has its weapons as well and coach Tim Flossie very vocally stated this week he plans to use them.  With a plow truck at the left tackle in Tommy Brown and a running game that features Cody Grice, who orally committed to the University of Akron Thursday, he intends to ram the ball down Buchtel's gullet.

Adding to the fun:  Powers and Flossie are good friends.  Powers considers hsi former coach at Buchtel, a man he won two state championships with, to be a father figure.  Get your popcorn.
