MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - High schoolers are ready to lace up their cleats, put on their helmets and take the field for the first time this season.

That also means Local 6's Jeff Bidwell, Andy Waterman and Adam Wells will have highlights from across the region on "Gridiron Glory," which can be seen at 10 p.m. each Friday on WPSD Local 6.

The new football season also marks the return our "Game of the Week," which takes us to the brand new McCracken County High School for its inaugural game. Three former high schools will come together as the Mustangs take on the Paducah Tilghman Blue Tornado.

Mike and Alex Mallory will call the game live on channel 6-3 Saturday at 7 p.m.

If you're heading to the game but you don't want to fight the traffic, you can take free shuttle buses that will be offered at six designated locations. The shuttle locations are listed below:

- Paducah Regional Sports Plex (starts at 5 p.m. and runs every 10 minutes)

- A&K Construction (starts at 5 p.m. and runs every 10 minutes)

- Pepsi Mid-America (starts at 5 p.m. and runs every 10 minutes)

- Former Reidland High School (departs at 5 p.m. and returns after the game)

- Former Lone Oak High School (departs at 5:15 p.m. and returns after the game)

- Former Heath High School (departs at 5:30 p.m. and returns after the game)
