Fordson v. Dearborn High: Who Will Win?
Dearborn's biggest rivalry football game of the year starts at 7 p.m. Friday.
When it comes to Dearborn prep football, tonight's the biggest night of the year.
At 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, Fordson High School and Dearborn High School—the city's biggest rival schools—will again go head to head for a night of crowd-pleasing, nail-biting, pride-showing football.
This year's game will take place on Fordson's turf.
Heading into the rivalry match-up, the Tractors (3-1) hold a better season record than the Pioneers (2-2). Both teams come into the game fresh off of wins in their last games—DHS against Edsel Ford High School, 35-14; and Fordson against Belleville, where they shut their opponents out, 17-0.
The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit's Michigan High School Athletic Association Football Friday Overtime. Then, catch the replay—presented by Xfinity to viewers on Comcast Channel 900—on the following Tuesday at 9:30 p.m., and again on Saturday at 9 a.m.
