Last fall, the news came that Bowling Green and Otsego had decided to renew their football rivalry.
Now, the wait is over.
Week 3 of the high school football season marks the first time the Bobcats and Knights will square off since 2007, when BG was a 35-23 winner.
The game, hosted by Otsego, will kickoff at 7 p.m.
"I am very excited about it," said first-year head coach Scott Seeliger. "It's something that we should have probably never stopped."
The schools, separated by just 6.1 miles, had played each other 24 times before BG ended the series after the 2007 season to play Toledo Central Catholic.
Otsego holds a 16-8 edge in the series and it also won six of the last seven meetings.

PERRYSBURG — Mistakes took away any chance for Perrysburg to knock off defending state runner-up Toledo Whitmer on Friday night at Steinecker Stadium.
A botched kick return and two interceptions led to easy scores for Whitmer as it spoiled Perrysburg’s home-opener 42-25 before a near-capacity crowd. PHOTO GALLERY
“I didn’t like the mistakes,” said Perrysburg head coach Matt Kregel. “You can’t give Whitmer three scores.”

PERRYSBURG — One could say Perrysburg’s football team got redemption. Another could say it rebounded.
Either way, it was safe to say the Yellow Jackets bounced back in a big way Friday night at Steinecker Stadium, in a matchup against Clay. PHOTO GALLERY
After an ugly season-opening loss to Whitmer in which Perrysburg made far too many mistakes, the Yellow Jackets took their frustrations out on the Eagles and walked away 50-13 winners.
“We had a really good week of practice and we fixed a lot of things,” said defensive back Quinn Thomas, who had one of six interceptions for the ’Jackets. “Everyone was focused coming into the game and we just did our jobs.
“We didn’t downplay them at all.”

After 11 seasons as Bowling Green High School’s head boys basketball coach, Von Graffin’s supplemental contract was non-renewed.
‘It’s about wins and losses to me,’’ Graffin said Monday night. ‘‘If you work hard, no matter who their Mom and Dad were ... if they were one of the best five they played. I think that bothered people in town; that’s my own opinion.
‘‘They asked me to resign, but I would never give up on these young men ... so I was non-renewed,’’ Graffin added.
In a sea of change at BGHS, Graffin has been a constant for more than a decade.
‘‘I have out-lived four football coaches and five baseball coaches,’’ Graffin said. ‘‘Jeff Dever (BGHS principal) and Mike Vannett (recently retired BGHS athletics director) were great for me.
‘‘They were in communication with my players and those kind of things that I couldn’t do because I wasn’t in the building.’’
