When the sun sets in West Point Friday evening, the Green Wave and the Starkville Yellow Jackets would have already put a few bruises on the other and it will add to what is one of the state’s most underrated rivalries.
It’s a rivalry that has stood the test of generations and classifications. There was a time, not too long ago, that the two teams were competing in Class 5A together and for North State crowns. Since 2004, the Green Wave own the 9-8 advantage in the game though Starkville has most recently won four out of the last five games.
No matter what, it will be hard-hitting and electric when the two teams meet in West Point Friday night.
