The X factor is teams now watch film of Clovis West and to beat Clovis West is to force them to pass. CW has a good offensive line, a couple of real good running backs with Brandon Wafer and Mateo Morales but teams are now loading the box.
The Knights secondary is as good as it gets so can Clovis West run the football against a very good Knights defense? The Knights running game is better than the Golden Eagles running game. The Knights have a tad better passing game. This is always a great rivalry and Thursday Night Football strange things can happen.

The X factor is this will be the best team the Ravens play all year long so they are playing with house money. The Ravens have to play the perfect game to win at home.
The Ravens come in beating Lancaster 38-0. Due to scheduling issues. The game was played on Wednesday night. QB Jeremiah Neal threw 4 TD’s, 3 of them to Kwamain Ross and one to Roosevelt Toussain. The defense had 8 sacks and held them to around 30 yards of total offense. It’s the 2nd straight shutout for the red hot Ravens and 6 points in the last 3 games.

Pag Meter Line Righetti High -35+
The Aztecs come in losing to Gonzales 14-10.
The Warriors beat Centennial 66-6. The Purple team held the G Hawks to 50 total yards and the offensive line mauled the G Hawks D-line. Most of the starters were done by halftime. QB Logan Mortensen threw 3 TD passes, Chase Reynoso caught a TD and Jake Steels caught 2 TD’s. Kidasi Nepa ran for 2 TD’s and Ethan Davenport recovered a blocked punt in the Golden Hawks end zone for a TD.
The X factor is some people who do rankings in the valley have ZERO clue on how good the Warriors are. The Warriors get no respect and could be going 10-0. The Aztecs offense won’t be able to keep up.
