SPOKANE -- All season long it's been pretty clear who the top two teams in Arena Football are: Spokane and Arizona. So it's only fitting that they'll meet for a third time, with a trip to Arena Bowl XXVI on the line.

Andy Olson's guys aren't shying away from a high stakes matchup against one of their premier rivals. Some players say they feel they've got something to prove against a Rattlers team that took the regular season title after the squads split their two meetings.

There is no love lost between these two, but Olson wants his guys to be as business like as possible this week.

Spokane last visited Arizona for a playoff game back in 2011. That resulted in a Rattlers win. The teams are 1-and-1 in their playoff history. Game three comes Saturday at 6:30 p.m. in Phoenix.
