Our Newschannel 6 Game of the Week for Week 6 of the high school football season needs no introduction: Rider and Wichita Falls High School!
The Coyotes will be the home team Friday night at 7 p.m. at Memorial Stadium, as they aim to make their first win of the season a big one, against their rivals. They will enter and sit on the West, or Press Box, side of the stadium
The Raiders are 2-2, and 1-0 in District 5-5A after a win Thursday night over Saginaw. They will enter on the East, visitors' side.
Last season, Old High won their first game against Rider since 2009, taking a wild one by a 50-36 score. The Coyotes haven't won back-to-back meetings since 2001 and 2002, as Rider has won nine of the 12 meetings since then.
