Week 5: Huge crowds expected for Oak Creek vs. Franklin game

OAK CREEK, Wis.  (CBS 58) -- Week 5 of the CBS 58 High School Tailgate takes us to Oak Creek High School.

The two schools are separated by just 4 miles and that's always a recipe for a good rivalry.

The focus on this game will be Franklin's senior quarterback Max Alba. He's committed to play baseball at North Carolina next year, but he can sling it on the gridiron as well.

Alba has already thrown 10 touchdowns this year, spearheading a dangerous Franklin offense.

But, if anyone can slow them down it could be the Oak Creek defense. The knights had three defensive scores last week and they're averaging more than 35 points a game.

This matchup always draws huge crowds, both sides saying this is why they play the game. 

"Whenever you play Oak Creek, there's just something about it. Every year when you play them, you get those butterflies in your stomach and you know it's going to be a great game," said Franklin High School Quarterback Max Alba.

"Amazing, exciting, you can't wait, adrenaline rushing. This is why you play football for these types of game," said Oak Creek Running Back Eli Robinson.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. and they're expecting more than 3,000 people at the game.

Check back for highlights and reaction.
