Friday Night Lights Game of the Week presented by the Bedford Ambulatory Surgical Centers
#2 Merrimack Tomahawks at #1 Bedford Bulldogs
Week One of the 2016 NHIAA Football season features a highly-anticipated match-up between two of the top teams in the state, who happen to be neighboring towns. The Bedford Bulldogs (#1 in the Union Leader – ESPN NH Power Poll) return many key players from a team that nearly punched their ticket to the championship game a season ago. The Merrimack Tomahawks (tied for #2 with Exeter in Power Poll) also bring back a lot of experience from a squad that played surprisingly well in 2015.
Can the Tomahawks pull off the road upset and steal the headlines in Week One? Or will the Bulldogs defend their home-turf in front of what is expected to be thousands of fans?
ESPN New Hampshire will provide complete live coverage starting at 6p on Friday. Listen to broadcast on the local radio (900 & 1250AM), live online at espnnhradio.com, or on the TuneIn app.
