Are you ready for a whirlwind of football? TEN, yes TEN games scheduled for Friday night on Oahu. We will do our very best to keep you covered.
Perhaps no team has an opportunity in front of them the next two weeks as big as Campbell. The Sabers, who started the season 0-2, control their own destiny toward getting a first-round bye in the OIA playoffs. Campbell (3-3, 3-2 OIA Blue) needs a win at home tonight against No. 4 Waianae and a victory over winless Radford next week to get the No. 2 seed in the division. It won’t be easy against the Seariders (6-1, 5-1), whose only loss is to No. 1 Kahuku.
HISTORY: Waianae leads the series 33-6 in the Prep Bowl and state championship eras, but the Sabers have won three of the last four meetings, including a 32-24 win last season.
