The Wildcat nation is ready for action.

Hundreds of students packed the Cat Gymnasium to get hyped up to take on the Lowndes High Vikings.

"I couldn't be more excited. I'm a senior. I'm about to live it up out there in those stands," said Valdosta High School Student Sala Brian.

But setting up the big event wasn't easy.

"This is about as big a rivalry as you can get," said Owen Prince.

He has been putting in the hours to give the fans what they want this year.

"You can't understand this until you have lived and breathed it for a week," said Prince.

Lowndes High Assistant Principal Bruce Crook has lived through it nearly his entire life.

He's even taking this rivalry to a new level---his son will be celebrating his wedding rehearsal in a special way.

"The rehearsal dinner will be a tailgate rehearsal here at the stadium," said Crook.

Whether it's holy matrimony just a love for the game, everybody's ready for some football.

The game kicks off at eight o'clock and like years before fans are hoping this one is filled with a lot of excitement.

I hasn't been much of a rivalry lately--Lowndes has a seven game win streak in the series.
