The Great American Rivalry Series emerged from a desire to celebrate the cultural phenomenon of Friday night high school football, shining the spotlight on classic gridiron clashes where expectations are sky high and die-hard fans abound.

New states we’ll be visiting this fall are Maine, Utah, Vermont, and Arkansas, bringing the total by the end of the season to 38 states since the Series began.
