The Meridian High Wildcats continue their rugged pre-division schedule Friday night with a highly-anticipated game against second ranked Wayne County.
The Wildcats are 1 and 1 with a win over Northeast Lauderdale and a loss to Starkville.
The defending Class 4A state champion War Eagles are 2 and 0, with wins over George County and Louisville.
This will mark the first regular season meeting between the two teams since 2001.
Next week, Meridian will host West Lauderdale in the first-ever gridiron meeting between the schools.
