Football is back which means it's time for another year of #Tailgate13.
Our week one #Tailgate13 game of the week features one of Georgia's oldest rivalries. The Northside Eagles will play against the Warner Robins Demons at McConnell-Talbert Stadium Friday at 7:30 p.m.
This will be the 53rd time the two teams have played each other. Warner Robins is 29-24 in the matchup, but Northside has won 13 of the last 16 games. In last year's opening season matchup, Northside won 55-3.
Both teams made the playoffs last season. Warner Robins lost in the first round of the AAAAA playoffs while Northside lost in the semi-finals of the AAAAAA playoffs.
Our Tailgate show will start at 5 p.m. and Ben Jones and Frank Malloy will be joined by bands and cheerleaders to highlight the sights and sounds of the crosstown rivalry! Come out and tailgate for your chance to have some fun with the crew!
Later that night, catch all the highlights on Football Friday Night at 11:35 p.m.
And be sure to use #Tailgate13 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram throughout the night!
