Another high school football match-up involving two of the nation’s best will be played at Sun Life Stadium next weekend.

The highly-anticipated Sept. 8 match-up between Miami Booker T. Washington and Miami Central, each of which is ranked in the top 10 nationally, has been moved to Sun Life Stadium at 7 p.m.

Both teams were state runners-up in their respective classes last season.

The Rockets, who are playing Grayson (Ga.) on the road Friday night, are ranked No. 1 by USA Today. Booker T., ranked No. 9 by MaxPreps and No. 11 by USA Today, play Carol City on Friday.

Central has won three of the past four meetings in the series, including a dramatic 29-26 win last season.

Tickets are $12 and parking for the game will be free.

It is rumored Sun Life Stadium will host at least one more game involving South Florida football powerhouses later this season.
