(WAOW) - The countdown to kickoff leads us to tonight... the first full evening of high school football around the state of Wisconsin.

Our first edition of sports express comes to you at halftime of tonight's Packers - Cardinals game.

That's a 9pm kick Central time, so be on the lookout for halftime when 10pm rolls around!

Week one is filled with a lot of non-conference games.

And a super-tough contest for DC Everest.

The Evergreens are on the road at defending division one state champion Homestead.

The Highlanders have won state twice the past three years.

After that... Everest faces an Illinois state runner-up.

So that's quite the non-conference schedule.

DC Everest Head Coach Wayne Steffenhagen: "We have a very, very, very tough schedule, no question. When you look at it over the long haul it will be a positive because it makes you raise the bar to work harder."
