Next Up, High School Football Teams Battle it out on Game of the Week!

There's more local, live action football from the best high school teams coming on Game of the Week. Witness a Catholic School face-off with the Brother Rice Crusaders taking on the Joliet Catholic Academy Hilltoppers, who currently hold the 16th place ranking in Week 7 of Michael O'Brien's Chicago Sun-Times Super 25 Football Rankings list, Friday at 7:30P on The U. 

The Hilltoppers and Crusaders last went head-to-head in a non-conference game last October. The Hilltoppers secured the win on the Crusader's home-field with a final score of 56-49.

Through the season, keep up with this year's local high-intensity prep football games on The U. And stay with The U and CW26 for all the post-season action. The U is the place to turn to for the IHSA Football Playoff Pairings Show on October 22. Then on Thanksgiving weekend, watch all the IHSA Championship games on both The U and CW26. Game schedules can be found here

The U can be seen on Channel 48.1 and WCIU, Channel 26.2, XFINITY 230|360, RCN 610, WOW 170, Dish 48, Spectrum Charter 191 and U-Verse.
