Five years ago, De La Salle (Concord, Calif.) was supposed to visit Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) for a cross-country clash, but Bosco's league voted against allowing the game. This year the league allowed the game, and on Saturday night in California De La Salle will host Bosco in a nationally televised contest.
