There are many ways to count how attractive Friday's battle of the classes will be, when the Class 4A No. 5 ranked Detroit Lakes football team invades the Class 3A No. 2 ranked Perham.


The most important outcome will crown the North Heart O'Lakes Conference champion, as both teams entered the seventh week of the season at 6-0.

Second, the game is the second one in an already blossoming rivalry, which was kicked off last year in grand style.
