This game marks the first of 13 consecutive weeks of coverage that features nine regular season football games followed by three playoff games.  A high profile girls volleyball match is also included in the Fall line-up when perennial power St. Francis visits El Camino in Week 2.

The games will be announced by Play-by-Play broadcaster Will James, CIF Hall of Famer Jim Dimino, and Sideline Reporter Rick Stewart.
