We are now officially in the elite 8 of BGN's Greatest Football Movie Of All Time tournament. These are the 8 greatest football movies ever according to you. The matchups in this round will be #1 Invincible vs #3 The Waterboy, #4 Any Given Sunday vs #5 The Replacements, #1 Remember The Titans vs #2 Friday Night Lights and #1 Brian's Song vs #2 Rudy. So if you haven't seen some of these movies, you've got some time to check them out.

Our first matchup is one featuring two movies that there's a really good chance you've already seen.

Invincible is based on the story of Vince Papale, a 30-year-old bartender from South Philadelphia who overcame long odds to play for the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles in 1976.

#3 seeded The Waterboy starring Adam Sandler is a movie I'm sure we've all seen because it's on cable all the time. A football team water boy discovers he has a unique tackling ability and becomes a member of the team.
