Herriman, Utah, was the center of the football universe on Thursday night, with Herriman High hosting Davis High in the first high school football game of 2020.

The state of play: Mustang Stadium can hold up to 4,000, but cheerleaders had to work with 25% capacity — just 700 Herriman fans and 200 Davis fans were allowed.

  • "There's like 12 of us in a family but we only get four tickets so I don't know. We're going to have to rotate throughout the season," said Rosie Hansen, whose brother plays for Herriman, via KSL-TV

What's next: 17 more states kickoff this month, and another 15 start in September and October. 14 states and Washington, D.C. have postponed football until 2021.
