2017 Kickoff Classics

Well, posted this last year, and figure it would be worthwhile to do it again. Aside from the well known Crosstown Showdown, there's four other 'kickoff classics'. Two in Michigan, one in New York, and Georgia.

Corky Kell Classic
Mercer University, Macon, Georgia
Thursday, August 17
530pm Lee County v. Mary Persons
830pm Houston County v. Jones County

Georgia State Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia
Friday, August 18
530pm South Forsyth v. Roswell
830pm Buford v. Hillgrove

Saturday, August 19
9am Kell v. Tucker
1145am Archer v. Brookwood
245pm Colquitt County v. Norcross
545pm Mill Creek v. McEachern
845pm North Gwinnett v. Walton

The Corky Kell Classic started in 1992. It's 26th year kicks off the 2017 season. Originally a mainstay of the Georgia Dome, the games had been tentatively slated for the Georgia Dome's replacement. However, construction forced the games out for 2017. After a 9 game slate between Mercer, McEachern HS, and the Georgia Dome, this year moved games to Georgia State Stadium. Formerly well known as Turner Field that is being reconstructed as a 23,000 seat football stadium. Being outdoors, mid-day August days in Georgia may really hamper the crowd.

Battle at the Big House
Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Thursday, August 24
4pm Saline v. Rockford
7pm Belleville v. Brighton

Friday, August 25
4pm Romeo v. Oxford
7pm Lapeer v. Clarkston

Saturday, August 26
1pm Muskegon Mona Shores v. Canton
4pm Fenton v. Ortonville Brandon

This will be the second year of the Battle at the Big House. This year, there's six games instead of 7, with $10 tickets and $10 parking at Michigan Stadium.


Prep Kickoff Classic
Tom Adams Field, Wayne State U., Detroit, Michigan
Thursday, August 24
4pm Walled Lake Western v. West Bloomfield
7pm Davison v. Southfield A&T

Friday, August 25
4pm Almont v. Grosse Ile
7pm Lowell v. Warren De La Salle

Saturday, August 26
12pm East English Village Prep v. River Rouge
3pm Oak Park v. Utica Eisenhower
6pm Detroit Martin Luther King v. Indianapolis Cathedral

The 13th year of the Prep Kickoff Classic. Ran by the Detroit Sports Commission, it was moved to Wayne State in 2012 from Eastern Michigan University.


NYSPHSAA Section III Kickoff Classic
Carrier Dome, Syracuse, New York
Thursday, August 31
5pm Fairport v. Cicero-North Syracuse
8pm Corning v. Baldwinsville

Saturday, September 2
11am West Genessee v. Syracuse Nottingham
2pm East Syracuse Minoa v. Brighton
5pm Vestal v. Utica
8pm Ithaca v. Auburn

Sunday, September 3
11am Horseheads v. Hilton
2pm Batavia v. Johnson City
5pm Phoenix v. Port Byron

The Carrier Dome's Kickoff Classic has been running for many years now and has regularly had 8 to 10 games on New York's opening weekend. Friday is set aside for the Syracuse Orange game, but they may still schedule a game for Friday morning or Sunday night.

It's odd that ESPN isn't doing anything until August 25th.

Did any of these games have to be moved like the Showdown?

No. Because after the Showdown moved their games, the NCAA amended their rule to move the end of the dead period. So games this weekend were okay. Cincinnati just jumped the gun.

There's one more kickoff classic that I found. And had I not already planned to be in Ann Arbor on Friday afternoon, I would've looked into making the trip to Chicago. Maybe next year.

Kickoff Classic
at Soldier Field, Chicago, IL
Saturday, August 25
1:00PM: Mt. Carmel vs. Chicago Taft
4:00PM: St. Rita v. St. Patricks
7:00PM: Lane Tech vs. Chicago Leo
