Friday Night Fever Week 1: High school football photos and videos
COLUMBIA - The weather couldn't hold in its tears of joy with the return of Friday Night Fever tonight.
Our game of the week is an exciting one, kicking off with the Battle of the Rocks. Rock Bridge looks to build from their impressive 10-3 record from last season as they take on Rockhurst who had an equally impressive record of 11-3.
