Stu Pospisil Omaha World-Herald

TV: KXVO (Cox Channel 11)
Live streaming video: NEPrepZone.com
When: 7 p.m. (pregame show starts at 6:30)
Where: Nelson Stadium, 88th and Park Drive in Ralston

When Blair (0-2) has the ball: The Bears are averaging 296.5 yards a game, yet have only 16 points to show for it. Vance Janssen, who had a big game receiving in a blowout loss to Gretna, could have success against a Rams defense that has been vulnerable to the pass.

When Class B No. 9 Ralston (2-0) has the ball: Isaac Wallace, who ran for 188 yards and five touchdowns last week, will be facing a defense that has been gashed for 561 yards (280.5 average).

Stu’s pick: Ralston.
