Severna Park (3-1)

at No. 1 Old Mill (4-0)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The Falcons return to the site of last year's 12-6 upset of the Patriots. Old Mill, the home team again because of the county's new, two-year schedule cycle, is ranked No. 1 in The Sun's poll for the first time. The Patriots have outscored opponents 134-26, but face a tough Severna Park defense led by linebackers Andrew Ferris and Alex Kin and lineman Rob Dooley.

Glen Burnie (2-2)

at North County (0-4)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The Gophers, led by quarterback Cody Myers, have a shot at their first three-game winning streak since 1995. The Knights have lost 15 straight.

South River (1-3)

at Southern-AA (3-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Despite their record, the Seahawks have been competitive, including Monday's 22-7 loss to top-ranked Old Mill. The Bulldogs were stunned, 22-20, by Glen Burnie on Monday and are fortunate to be home as they re-group with star rusher Bobby Atwell nursing a bad right ankle.

Meade (0-4) at Chesapeake (2-2)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Rookie coach Jim Simms' host Cougars can win three straight for the first time since the start of the 1988 season with their single-wing, which riddled the Mustangs, 28-0, last year.

Northeast (0-4) at Arundel (3-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The host Wildcats can't rest after their 17-0 win at Annapolis on Monday. The Eagles are no pushover as evidenced by playing Old Mill tough for a half before losing, 25-7, and an 18-15 loss to Severna Park.

St. Mary's (2-2) at Pikesville (0-4)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Coach Mike Codd is hoping that this will be a get well game for his struggling Saints, who have lost two in a row.

St. Paul's (2-1) at Severn (2-2)

Time: 3.45 p.m.

Outlook: The host Admirals, seeking their second straight win over St. Paul's, are led by Deon Peters, who has rushed for 481 yards in his past two games.


Annapolis (2-2)

at No. 7 Broadneck (4-0)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: It's homecoming at Lawrence E. Knight Stadium, and a win over neighbor Annapolis would make the Bruins' day. The Panthers, who have suffered consecutive shutout losses for the first time since 1974, face a defense, led by linebacker Tyler Moyer, that has allowed 20 points in four games.

Arch. Spalding (4-0) at Friends (1-2)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Beating the Quakers will give the Cavaliers a school record for consecutive wins and leave them one short of the most wins in a season in the school's 20-year football history.
