JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – It’s been a while. The last time Campbell and Halls played each other in football, the seniors were in elementary school. That was 2014. However, what makes that last meeting special for Cougar fans is that it was Campbell’s 100th all-time win in football, a milestone that was a long time in the making. The rivalry renews Thursday in a 7pm kick-off on Adams Field, and WLAF will be there with all the live coverage. Connect HERE to see Coach Justin Price’s pregame interview on the Halls game.

Tomorrow’s game marks the 25th meeting between the Cougars and the Halls Red Devils. Halls won the first 19 meetings, and Campbell has won the last five. Both teams have similar records from 2014 until now; Campbell is 52 & 45 while Halls is 51 & 51.

Halls was 2 & 9 last season while Campbell finished 5 & 5 for the regular season losing its opening game in the playoffs to end the year at 5 & 6.

Since 1975, WLAF and the Doyle’s Tire Shop Network will once again have all the coverage of Campbell Football. The voices and faces of WLAF’s broadcast team return for their 13th season. Les Martin and Brent Allen send you all the excitement over WLAF’s ten media outlets covering radio, television and social media. Airtime for the Halls game is 6:30pm with the kickoff at 7:00 on Thursday.
