A big Mid-Michigan football battle is set to take place on Friday.
Midland High and Dow High will face off in the playoffs for the first time in years tomorrow night.
Tickets went on sale for the big game on Thursday, and students at both schools are already claiming victory.
"I think Midland is going to win obviously because the last time they played against Dow, it was 46 to 6," said one Midland High School student.
"We're not going to turn the ball over this time and give them 21 points, so I expect Brendan to have a really good game," said a Dow High student.
Tickets to the showdown are $5 and are available at either of the high school's main offices from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. or at the game, which starts at 7 p.m.
