HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Laurel and Hattiesburg will meet for a rematch of the Lil' Brown Jug rivalry game, but this time, the Class 5A South State Championship and a trip to the state title game are on the line. WDAM caught up with both cities' mayors to see what they had to say about the game.
Hattiesburg won the regular season matchup for the third year in a row, claiming the Lil' Brown Jug, but Laurel has eliminated the Tigers from the playoffs in the past two years.
