The Thanksgiving Day football rivalry between Plainfield's Cardinals and Westfield's Blue Devils will be re-enacted for the 109th year next week.

But win or lose, both teams have a unique opportunity for a national title.

The two teams have been included in USAToday's nationwide contest to select the 'Best Rivalry' between high school football teams. The Plainfield-Westiield rivalry is one of only five selected from New Jersey to participate in the contest.

Fans of the two teams have until a week from today (Novemeber 27) to vote in the contest. To cast your ballot, visit USAToday's High School Sports Contest page (here).

Winning rivals from each state will move on to a regional contest, after which a top ten will emerge, forming the final round.

It's an easy way to boost Plainfield's and Westfield's two teams and their longstanding rivalry.

So, do it -- and invite your friends to join in.
