When Papillion-La Vista South (2-3) has the ball: Drew Klein has rushed for 830 yards and seven touchdowns for the Titans, looking to break a three-game losing streak. Junior Gabe Smallwood is a 54-percent passer.

When Benson (1-4) has the ball: Jayden Swensen is throwing for 150 yards a game, getting five touchdown passes in the Bunnies’ only win of the season. They are averaging 1.7 yards per carry.

Stu’s pick: While both teams are better than a year ago, Papio South is 9-0 in the series and should make it 10 in a row against the Bunnies.
