Ann Arbor to host seven games on the opening weekend

Ann Arbor – The inaugural Battle of the Big House will be held the first weekend of the 2016 football season.

All that’s left to finalize the agreement is the proverbial crossing of the Ts and dotting of the Is, which will take place Friday.

On Aug. 25 Brighton will play Detroit East English Village Prep at 4 p.m. At 7 p.m. Walled Lake Western will play Farmington.

The next day, a Friday, Kalamazoo Central will play St. Joseph at 4 p.m. and at 7 p.m. Clarkston will play Lapeer.

On Aug. 27 Detroit Catholic Central will play Sterling Heights Stevenson at 1 p.m. followed by East Kentwood’s game against Farmington Hills Harrison at 4 p.m. Last season these two teams played at Harrison and East Kentwood won 35-28.

In the finale Ann Arbor Pioneer will play Muskegon at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $10 each day and they are good for that day’s games.
