While national rankings don't guarantee an appearance on national television, it doesn't hurt.

Wednesday, ESPN announced that Pleasant Grove High School, ranked #8 in's Preseason Top 25 Early Contenders Poll, will face Monterey Trail on ESPN2 on August 27th.

Last year the Eagles bookended their season with wins over Monterey Trail.

Pleasant Grove, which finished 13-1, beat MT 20-12 in the season opener, and then beat them again 21-6 to win the CIF-Sac-Joaquin Section Division I title on December 4th.
