Are you ready for some Tuesday night football?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Public League football master schedule is out and one of the odder matchups comes early in the season.

That would be a nonconference matchup between Tilden and Western Big Six power Rock Island at Gately Stadium at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 30.

Yes, you read that right: the game is on a Tuesday. It'll be the season opener for Tilden, which has just eight games scheduled, but it'll be the second game for Rock Island. The Rocks open at Geneva on Friday, Aug. 26 and complete a whirlwind week by playing their third game of the season at Pekin on Friday, Sept. 2.

The other Western Big Six schools play nonconference games in Week 9, but apparently Rock Island couldn't find an opponent for that weekend and opted for an extra game in Week 2.
