TV: KXVO (Cox Channel 11)
Live streaming video: NEPrepZone.com
When: 7 p.m. (pregame show starts at 6:30)
Where: Moylan Field, 3131 S. 156th St.

When Seward (2-2) has the ball: The Jays have improved with the spread offense of new coach Jamie Opfer. Keith Wolverton is averaging 181 yards a game passing. There are several capable receivers. Skutt’s Jon Plance has three pickoffs and Ben Wenke two.

When Class B No. 4 Skutt (3-1) has the ball: Creighton Koley is healthy again and the SkyHawks have been using him and backup Isaiah Ramsey at quarterback. Brett LaMontia and Dakota Krejci-Smith are the top rushers, and Zach Zeplin is the primary receiver with four touchdown catches.

Stu’s pick: Skutt is the third consecutive ranked opponent for Seward, which is coming off losses to No. 2 Aurora and No. 9 York. Wolverton will need a hot hand to keep his team in the game.
