Buford and Gainesville square off during the 2010 season.
The Aug. 26 high school football game between Buford and Gainesville will be broadcast live on ESPN 360 over the internet.

The announcement means the contest, which will be played at Buford's Tom Riden Stadium, has been moved from a typical Friday night kickoff time of 7:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The game will be the season-opener for Gainesville, while the Wolves will commence the season a week earlier, taking on Blessed Trinity on Aug. 19 in Roswell. The Wolves are coming off a fourth straight Class AA crown, while Gainesville won its third straight region title in 2010.

-- WOLVES GAME WITH FLORIDA TEAM MOVED: It was also announced that Buford's game with Yulee, Fla., originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, will now be played on Sept. 9.

The Wolves will play the game at the Westminster School in Atlanta, kicking off at 8:30 p.m.
