MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The 9th annual champion challenge officially kicks off the 2014 prep football season for the Alabama high school athletic association.

Six high schools, including one defending state champion will play Friday and Saturday at Cramton Bowl. It gets started at 7 p.m. Friday night starting out with Carver High School versus Opelika High School.

On Saturday Piedmont and Dadeville play at 5 p.m. and Spanish Fort and Stanhope Elmore at 7:30 p.m.

2014 marks the first year that schools will have 11 weeks to play 10 games and the first year for the new seven-classification system. Schools still have a choice to count any week one contest as a regular-season or exhibition contest.

The Carver- Opelika and Piedmont-Dadeville games will remain as exhibition games and will not count on either team's record but the Spanish Fort-Stanhope Elmore game will be the regular season opener for each school.

Raycom Media will be bringing the games to you. You can watch them all Live on 12.2- Bounce TV.
