Oakland will host Maryville in one of two Class 6A football semifinal games Friday night. WGNS will have coverage of the game.

Coach Creasy says there's nothing like practicing on Thanksgiving Day to prepare for a football game. That means you've had a tremendous season:
The home team has won the last four meetings in these semifinal matchups and the winner has won the last three state championships.
Pregame coverage on WGNS begins at 6pm with Tri-Star Friday Night Live Pregame with J.P. Plant. Then, at 6:30pm, it's the Primetime Sports Countdown to Kickoff, sponsored by the Law Offices of John Day. Kickoff at 7pm on State Farm Prep Football.
