Osseo's had the better of things lately, while Maple Grove still has a big edge overall in their football rivalry.
After playing two close games (including a playoff meeting) last season, the two rivals are ready to hit the field Friday night.
Osseo opened the season with a 37-21 win over Centennial, and the Orioles have taken five of the last six against Maple Grove. Maple Grove had an offensive outburst in the season opener against Armstrong, scoring 54 points and breaking seven school records in the game.
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. Friday at Maple Grove. You can watch the game live on Channel 12 or at Twelve.tv. The game replays Saturday night at 8:30 and 11:00 p.m.
