Oil City versus Franklin. The mere mention of that matchup has conjured up emotions in players, coaches and fans for more than 100 years.

Those emotions will no doubt be on display again today when the Oilers and Knights square off in the 140th meeting of what local sports radio personality Joe Lodanosky handsomely refers to as "The Route 8 Rivalry." Kickoff for the Region 7 opener for both teams is set for 7 p.m. at Franklin.
