A look at some of the top games in Central Ohio on Friday

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Football is officially back in Central Ohio. With 75 games taking place around the area on Friday, let's take a look at some of the top games that Week 1 has to offer. For the complete Week 1 schedule, click here.

Columbus City League

Africentric at East

Friday is a big test between two schools only separated by three miles but in two separate divisions in the City League. Africentric comes in with high expectations as the Nubians finally broke through last season and had its best campaign in school history.

The Nubians are looking to start off hot on the road against an East program that is also on the rise. Look for this to be a big matchup to determine who gets Broad Street bragging rights on the east side of town.
