GREEN BAY – Local Bay Conference rivals West De Pere and Menasha are both undefeated and set for a Friday night showdown this week.
The two schools will then follow up that meeting by squaring off in the QB Challenge at halftime of Sunday night’s Packers-Giants game at Lambeau Field.
West De Pere and Menasha are both 7-0, 6-0 in conference heading into Friday night’s battle. They’re also both ranked in the top three in their respective WisSports.net state coaches’ polls, with West De Pere at No. 3 in Division 3 and Menasha at No. 2 in Division 2.
