The area has some tough conferences, but nothing is more tough on the gridiron than the Interstate 8.

In its fourth season, the I-8 saw individual squads win the first two seasons, before the Harper Creek Beavers and the Jackson Lumen Christi Titans split the title last year (Harper won the head-to-head with Lumen Christi).

This season has turned out to be a four-team race, with the Beavers and Titans in the mix. A former champion in the Coldwater Cardinals and the upstart Parma Western Panthers are along in the stretch with three conference games remaining.

Tonight, our Game of the Night takes us to Jackson County, where Harper Creek battles Western in what could determine the final contenders in the I-8. Coldwater and Lumen Christi also play each other tonight.

Other conference races heat up tonight, with the top teams in the Big 8 (Union City and Reading), Greater Lansing Athletic Conference (Olivet and Lake Odessa-Lakewood) and the Southern Michigan 8-Man League (Bellevue and Camden-Frontier) all face off in Week 6 of the High School Football season.

Take a look at tonight's preview!
