(COLUMBIA) - It was another great night of high school football around Mid-Missouri. In Marshall, players and cheerleaders donned pink uniforms on Breast Cancer Awareness Night. In Hallsville, students celebrated Homecoming. And throughout the state, teams added new chapters to old rivarlies.
In one of Missouri's oldest rivalries the Jays of Jefferson City traveled to Columbia to take on Hickman and left with a 40-33 victory.
One of tonight's matchups featured a pair of top 10 teams as ninth ranked Blair Oaks snuck past number two California 29-28.
Below are photos and updates from Friday's games, with newest items on top.
