Ask knowledgeable Northwest Indiana prep football fans to click off a list of the most memorable game played in the Region and the 1995 "Mud Bowl" between Hobart and Griffith in the hallowed Brickie Bowl, a 14-13 upset that ended the previously-unbeaten Panthers season in the Class 4A regional, stands at or near the top of the list.

So what's a game 24 years ago have to do with Friday's regional clash between New Prairie and Hobart?
