No. 4 Papillion-La Vista (5-0) vs. No. 1 Millard North (5-0) at Buell Stadium: See Isaac (Aakre) run. See Alec (Ditoro) pass. See a game that might take 35 points or more to win. Big question: Are Papio’s lines up for the challenge?
No. 2 Millard South (4-1) at No. 8 Omaha Westside (4-1): Best test to date for the host Warriors, who would be undefeated had they not given up a 14-0 lead and lost to Prep 35-30 in their second game. Westside hasn’t seen a balanced attack like the Patriots’.
Omaha Burke (2-3) vs. No. 5 Omaha North (5-0), Kinnick Stadium: Dangerous game for the Vikings, who visit Papio next week. Burke has shown more offense than Lincoln Southwest, which led North in the fourth quarter of the Vikings’ first real game of the season. Can the Burke defense pull it together after Millard North, especially “backup” quarterback Clay Fisher, hammered it last week?
Class B No. 9 Omaha Gross (4-1) vs. No. 5 Elkhorn South (4-1) at Elkhorn Stadium: Stat of the week – South has not allowed a first-half point this season. Zach Johnk, Anthony Vigneri and the Cougars would like to end that streak.
Class C-2 No. 5 Sutton (4-0) at No. 8 Hastings St. Cecilia (3-1), Duncan Field: The last time St. Cecilia lost twice in the regular season was 2005. Injuries have beset the Bluehawks, who are without several key players. Sutton is after its first undefeated regular season since 1998.
There are four additional undefeated matchups: Crofton at Norfolk Lutheran Northeast in C-2; Arapahoe at Overton in Eight Man-1; and Shelton at Amherst and Lyons-Decatur Northeast at Humphrey St. Francis in Eight Man-2.
