Hawaii and Alaska Open the 2011 Regular Season

With the Lower 48 still going through fall camps, Alaska and Hawaii open the 2011 regular season this weekend.

Actually, the season got underway Thursday night with a match-up between teams off the mainland in the Fire and Ice Bowl in Oahu, Hawaii.

Service High School, Alaska's 2010 Large Schools runner-up,  faced Leilehua High, a Hawaii Division I semifinalist last year.  In the end, neither state could claim bragging rights as the game ended in a 34-34 tie that wasn't broken because there was no overtime played in the preseason contest.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that Leilehua mounted a brilliant comeback that saw the Mules score two touchdowns in the final 3:05 after Service took a 34-21 lead.

Now let's take a look at this weekend's schedule in both states:
