On the outskirts of Kansas City, two schools that are separated by only 4 miles have an intense rivalry that is roaring into the season. Last year, this game was a slugfest that had no shortage of points, as the Blue Springs Wildcats took down the Blue Springs South Jaguars 49-35. This game is always a fight, but the Wildcats have owned the Jaguars as of late and have the advantage in the series with a record of 19-7. As always, this game will be a slugfest on the gridiron, as Blue Springs South hopes to reverse their luck and takedown their rivals, and Blue Springs hopes to continue their reign of dominance.
