Video: No. 1 vs. No. 2 in high school footballMater Dei and Bishop Gorman will be part of history Friday night.
When No. 1 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.)
faces No. 2 Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas)
on Friday (7:30 p.m. PST, Fox Sports West
), it marks the seventh time since 2000 that high school football's top two ranked teams square off.
Unlike previous No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdowns, we didn't have to wait long for this one. Sept. 1 is the earliest in the season this has ever happened.
Three of the previous games involved California teams while Nevada joins the short list of states to have participated in a 1-2 epic.
See the video above for a complete look at No. 1 vs. No. 2 in high school football since 2000.
