Baraboo faces rival Reedsburg for a playoff spot


It's the 131st meeting all-time between the teams on Friday when Baraboo meets Reedsburg in the battle for the Old River Jug on the final week of the regular season, and both teams need a win to clinch a playoff spot.

Baraboo coach Steve Turkington talks about the long rivalry between the teams, and the stakes this week with the playoffs hanging in the balance. Even without a playoff spot on the line, he thinks much like last year's game that had no playoff implications that it would be a great game regardless.

As for the actual Old River Jug, the real Jug is kept safe in each school's respective trophy case. A traveling jug is used in place of the fragile original, and as you'll discover in this interview, there's no way anyone is drinking anything out of the Jug.
