= Not Ranked
Schools with 450 + enrollment
Last Week:  49 - 28 win @ Superior
The Mustangs rallied from a first quarter deficit to roll over Superior to stay undefeated in Big Rivers play. RB Justin Evans continued his sparkling play with 227 yards rushing and 3 TDs. This week Menomonie travels to Rice Lake for a real test for the defense. The Warriors suffered their first loss of the season to Hudson last Friday and will be looking to stay in the Big Rivers title hunt with an upset win.
Next Game: @ Rice Lake (5-1)
Eau Claire Memorial
Last Week:  43 - 6 win @ Eau Claire North
Sr. RB Jack Brown has quietly put together a very good season running behind the big offensive line of Memorial. Brown found the end zone 4 times against cross-town rival North last week. The Old Abes now get into the meat of their schedule, starting with Hudson this week, followed by Menomonie and Rice Lake. Big Rivers title challengers or skidding into the playoffs?
Next Game: vs. Hudson (4-2)
Last Week:  31 - 14 win @ Prescott
The Chieftains are another team that has not had to play a very tough schedule to this point. Prescott was a decent challenge but Osceola has not really been the overwhelming offensive team of the past few years. SCC's defense will be a huge hurdle for Osceola to overcome. Winner nails down at least a share of the Middle Border.
Next Game: vs. St. Croix Central (6-0)
Rice Lake
Last Week:  16 - 26 loss @ Hudson
The Warriors stumbled at Hudson last week, giving up key touchdowns with 33 seconds left in the first half and 30 seconds into the third period to dig a hole they could not climb out of. Plenty of rushing yards but they came grudgingly against a bend but don't break Hudson defense. What looked like the game of the year in the Big Rivers against Menomonie, now looks like the game of survival for Rice Lake.
Next Game: vs. Menomonie (6-0)
New Richmond
Last Week:  34 - 16 win @ Somerset
The Tigers continue to rack up wins in the strong Middle Border and face a good Ellsworth team this week to stay in the conference hunt. Ellsworth is looking at this game the same way. Home field advantage goes to the Tigers in this battle of talented QBs.
Next Game: vs. Ellsworth (5-1)

Schools with 250 - 449 enrollment
St. Croix Central
Last Week:  43 - 8 win vs. Amery
The Panthers kept on their roll with an easy win over Amery last Friday. The defense has been smothering running games all season and will be the key to stopping Osceola this week in the battle of highly ranked unbeatens. A win by SCC should ice the MB title.
Next Game: @ Osceola (6-0)
Stanley - Boyd
Last Week:  41 - 0 win @ Neillsville / Granton
The Orioles romped over Neillsville/Granton as expected and now should have real emotion in getting up for their game against Fall Creek this week. Fall Creek's RB, Ethan Ritger, has notched back to back 300 yard plus running games to get Stanley-Boyd's attention. That is not a good thing though as Ben Turner and his Oriole defensive mates have been chomping at the bit for a challenge like this.
Next Game: @ Fall Creek (3-3)
Last Week:  36 - 0 win vs. St. Croix Falls
The Pirates are a really good team that is playing a very weak schedule this season. SCF was supposed to be a test and holding the Pirates to zero points in the first quarter is about as good as it got in the game Friday. 29 second quarter points put the game out of reach for Grantsburg's sixth win. Unity awaits in Week 9 to be the only challenger to the repeating Lakeland North champs.
Next Game: @ Cameron (0-6)
Last Week:  54 - 6 win vs. Ladysmith
The Blackhawks had no trouble at all with Ladysmith last week as they continued their march to an HON title. Bloomer will be looking for a little revenge this week against a Chetek-Weyerhaeuser team that shut them out last season. An unbeaten regular season for Bloomer will mean home field in the early playoffs.
Next Game: @ Chetek - Weyerhaeuser (4-2)
Spencer / Columbus
Last Week:  51 - 24 win @ Cadott
Spencer/Columbus has fixed what ever was broken from their early season schedule and are crushing teams behind the running of Hunter Luepke. Thursday night lights means Carson Park and a scrappy Regis team that somehow seems to just do enough to win. Luepke may need 40 carries to seal the deal in this game.
Next Game: @ Eau Claire Regis (5-1)

Schools with 249 and under enrollment
Spring Valley
Last Week:  19 - 12 win @ Durand
The Cardinals once again rose to the occasion and stopped a bigger, more physical team in knocking off Durand last week. Spring Valley twice stoned Josh Biesterveld inside the 5 yard line on fourth down to win the game. Small school, small squad, big heart. The Cardinals play a non conference game this week against Altoona. The Rails have been improving but will have their hands full with Spring Valley's midline offense.
Next Game: vs. Altoona (2-4)
Clear Lake
Last Week:  41 - 6 win vs. Flambeau
Clear Lake is much like Grantsburg, a very talented team, playing a very weak schedule. The remaining 3 conference games should pose no real threat to Clear Lake as they roll to the Lakeland South title.
Next Game: @ Elmwood / Plum City (2-4)
Independence / G.
Last Week:  34 - 0 win vs. Whitehall
Independence/Gilmanton didn't need the emotion of playing next door rival Whitehall last week but it sure didn't hurt in the 34-0 whitewashing of the Norse. I/G has been a phenom this year, giving up only 3 offensive TDs and 1 TD off a kickoff return all season as they have rolled to 242 to 28 scoring differential. Week 9 battle against Melrose-Mindoro will decide the Dairyland.
Next Game: @ Augusta (3-3)
Eau Claire Regis
Last Week:  18 - 12 (OT) win @ Colby
Colby rebounded from being pounded by Spencer/Columbus to nearly pull off the upset of Regis last Friday. Run heavy Regis has been putting the ball in the air effectively as QB Isaac Michels had a hand in all three Rambler touchdowns. The Regis defense has its work cut out for them as they face hard running Hunter Luepke and Spencer/Columbus this week. The Ramblers have a history of relishing the underdog role and springing upsets so this could well be another Carson Park classic.
Next Game: vs. Spencer / Columbus (5-1)
Melrose - Mindoro
Last Week:  49 - 0 win vs. Augusta
The Mustangs are nowhere near the team that got destroyed by Bangor to start the season. Mel-Min swept over a competitive Augusta team with little resistance last week. This week is a step up from Augusta, as they take on C-FC in a Dairyland upper tier battle.
Next Game: @ Cochrane - Fountain City (3-3)
