County pride won’t be the only incentive when host Buford and Indian Land tangle Friday night.
The Jackets and Warriors each need a win to boost their Class A Upper State playoff hopes.
Buford, 4-4, 3-2, needs a win to help it toward a runner-up finish in region play.
Indian Land, 3-5, 1-3, is in hopes of a win to buoy its postseason hopes.
The game, which is part of the county’s oldest prep football rivalry, marks the second clash this season. Indian Land opened the season with a 14-7 win over the Jackets.
