Cast your vote on best classic prep football game from 2001-2009 to revisit

Voting continues through noon Monday

By , Columbian Assistant Sports Editor

Late last month, The Columbian asked fans to submit which regular-season games they would like to see included as part of our Friday Night Flashback series.

In total, 34 regular-season games were offered up, dating back to 1937.

We’ve broken these games into three groups — 2010 to present, 2000 to 2009 and 1999 and earlier. Fans will be asked to vote for their favorite game among these to be added to our Friday Night Flashback.

We’ll be asking for postseason game nominations in October.

Here is the link to vote for best game from before 2000.
