No. 1 vs. No. 2

And you can watch the whole game on Prime Ticket & FOX Sports GO! Learn more about what to expect under the Friday night lights.
Future UCLA vs. USC starting QBs
JT Daniels (the first picture in this gallery) is the next great quarterback in the Materi Dei lineage, and another one who will continue to college career at USC. For Gorman, future UCLA signal caller Dorian Thompson-Robinson is a unique player as he's started one-career game after backing up Tate Martell for two seasons. This will be an exciting QB matchup on Friday, and, for years to come on Saturdays.
There is insane talent ALL OVER the field
Both programs are LOADED with Division I talent on both sides of the ball, led by Bishop Gorma five-star LB Palaie Gaoteote (a USC verbal commitment) and Mater Dei five-star WR Amon-Ra St. Brown (pictured). OL Tommy Brown of the Monarchs is headed to Alabama, as well.
In 27 seasons of coaching Mater Dei football, head coach Bruce Rollinson has compilied a 272-83-2 record including two national titles, five CIF championships and one state trophy. He's one of the best in the biz and we get to watch him before his incredible career comes to a close.
