SHERMAN, Tex. -- It's the Battle of the Ax and bragging rights are on the line. Denison and Sherman take to the field for the annual tradition on Friday night.
Did you know this is one of the biggest rivalries in the state of Texas? In fact, it's been going on for so long know one really knows when the first game started, but we think it was in 1912.
Since then there have only been four games not played, three of which were during World War II.
The winner takes home the ax as a grand prize.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Bearcat Stadium in Sherman. Sherman is the reigning champions.
First News will be live from Bearcat Stadium and we’ll have all the postgame highlights and scores from around Texoma on the Friday Night Blitz and KXII.com.
