ESPN HS Football Kickoff schedule set

In Louisiana, the last full weekend of August is the weekend of football jamborees, exhibitions in which several schools gather at one stadium and match up for mini-games (usually about 24 minutes) in preparation for the season openers the following week.

In other parts of the country, however, that weekend marks the start of the regular season.

And ESPN will be there to bring it to you, with a 13-game schedule of televised prep games from throughout the country Aug. 24-26.

Tune in and get a sample of what prep football is like throughout the nation.
