It's safe to say these two teams have had this game circled on their calendar all season long.

And on Friday night, they will do battle in showdown of epic proportions as second-ranked Newton plays host to No. 8 Crockett in the District 10-3A Division II opener for both teams.

It is the ETSN.fm/Dairy Queen Game of the Week.

Crockett and Newton engaged in a classic last season with Newton securing a thrilling 38-35 victory, but the Bulldogs have revenge on their minds.

Entering Friday's action, Crocket (5-0) has outscored its first five opponents by an average margin of 24.8 points per game.

Newton has been equally dominant, defeating foes by an average score of 37-11.
