ESPN has announced the pairing for their annual High School Football Kick-off and Northwestern will be featured in one of the games.

The Northwestern vs. Gaffney August 23rd match-up will air on ESPN3 as one of 13 games the television network will feature throughout the weekend. The contest will feature the top two teams in the state as most media outlets have either the Trojans or Gaffney ranked #1 and the other at #2. Northwestern dominated the Indians 49-19 in the first game of the season last year, which was held in Gaffney.

Northwestern is led by star quarterback Mason Rudolph, who has committed to Oklahoma State University, while the Indians counter with their playmaker, Shaq Davidson, who will be going to the University of South Carolina. Davidson, however, is still nursing an injury sustained from basketball season that could limit his availability.
Below is a list of the full ESPN kick-off schedule.
