Today

DuBois (4-1) at Lake Clifton (4-1)

Time: 2:45 p.m.

Outlook: DuBois (4-0 league) is led by one of the city's best all-around players in QB-DB Marcus Parham, who enters this Baltimore City Division II contest having rushed for 786 yards and five touchdowns, thrown five scoring passes and returned three of his six interceptions and three fumble recoveries for touchdowns. LB Jose Figueroa (12 sacks) also helps DuBois, which will try to end a four-game winning streak by the Lakers (4-0 league). Lake Clifton has outscored its conference rivals, 88-19, with one shutout.

Dunbar (6-0) at Poly (5-1)

Time: 3:45 p.m.

Outlook: Both teams are 5-0 in league play after losses to Patterson were reversed because of the Clippers' inadvertent use of an ineligible player. Now they're both front-runners in the chase for the city's Division I crown. QB Earl Chaptman and RB Nathan Irby lead Dunbar, and RB Jasmond Walker, WR Jasphur Montgomery and LB Shanorm Young lead Poly.

No. 13 Havre de Grace (5-0) at Bel Air (4-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Havre de Grace brings an undefeated record and a first-place Harford County standing into the matchup with the Bobcats. Both teams like to put the ball in the air on offense, behind quarterbacks Andrew Berry of Bel Air (655 yards, seven TDs) and Shane West of Havre de Grace (408 yards, three TDs). The key for the Bobcats may be stopping Warriors shifty RB Mike Perez, who has rushed for 593 yards and six TDs.

Tomorrow

Boys' Latin (3-3) vs. Pallotti (6-0) at Suplee Field

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Led by QB Chris Read (760 passing yards, seven TDs), RB Shane Walterhoefer (721 rushing yards, nine TDs) and WRs Evans Burns, James Neal and Jordan Dutton, Boys' Latin (3-1 in Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association C Conference) aims to upend upstart Pallotti (3-0 league), which has clinched its first winning season since 1993. Pallotti's standouts are QB Kevin Olive (812 passing yards, 11 TDs), WR Tim Jennings (707, 10) and RB Alan Rice (981, 11).

Saturday

No. 2 Gilman (3-2) at No. 14 Loyola (3-3)

Time: Noon

Outlook: Led by All-Metro DB Grant Zimmerman and All-Metro LB Nate Hummel and LB David Caperna, defending MIAA A Conference champion Gilman (1-0 league) lost, 14-9, to Georgetown Prep of Bethesda, which routed Loyola, 45-27, two weeks later. But Loyola (1-0 league) has a capable defense led by second-team All-Metro LB-DB-QB Brady Smith (6-2, 240) and OL-DL Ted Melanson (6-0, 250). Loyola comes off last week's 21-18 win over then-No. 10 McDonogh.

No. 5 Woodlawn (5-1) at Dundalk (3-3)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: This Baltimore County Class 4A-3A game matches the teams that tied for last year's league title. Woodlawn (3-0 league) overcame a halftime deficit to defeat Dundalk a season ago. Dundalk (1-2 league) looks to end a two-game losing streak, but will have to do it without two of its best linemen, one of whom is injured. All-Metro OL-DL Danny Romanowski. Junior OL Brian Lawson (6-2, 285) and senior OL David Smith (6-3, 285) anchor a Dundalk line that starts three sophomores. But that line will meet Maryland-bound OL-DL Scott Burley (6-6, 318) and LB Damon Garnett (6-2, 213) of Woodlawn.

Gibbons (6-0) at Severn (3-3)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Severn (1-1 league) enters this MIAA B Conference game looking to rebound from last week's loss to Curley, with whom the Admirals and St. Mary's finished in a three-way tie for last year's conference crown. QB Jamal Jones and RB Deon Peters lead the Admirals against Gibbons (1-0 league), which is coming off last week's 21-7 win over St. Mary's, and is trying to become the first team in school history to achieve a 7-0 record. Leading the Crusaders are RB Antwarn Jones, RB Cory Robinson and LB-NG-DL Joe Galloway.

Spalding (6-1) at John Carroll (4-2)

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Spalding (1-1 league) enters this MIAA C Conference game having lost to defending champ Boys' Latin, which has been defeated by John Carroll. The homestanding Patriots (2-1 league) are in search of their fourth straight win.
