Today

Severn (6-3) vs. St. Mary's (3-6)

Time: 7 p.m.

Where: Navy-Marine Corps Stadium

Outlook: A win will give Severn (2-1 league) at least a share of its third straight Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association B Conference titleThe atmosphere of playing where Navy plays will motivate both teams. The county rushing title is at stake between Severn's Deon Peters (1,446 yards, 16 touchdowns) and St. Mary's Donte Sylve (1,298, 12).

Northeast (2-7) at Chesapeake (AA) (6-3)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Having clinched just the second winning season in school history, the Cougars can set a school record for wins and, if Charles County's Thomas Stone (7-2) loses at Mount St. Joseph (4-5) tomorrow, qualify for the 4A East playoffs. Cougars back Gary Townes (1,218 rushing) needs 61 passing yards to hit 1,000 (he has 939) and become the county's third to ring up the double in a season.

No. 2 Broadneck (9-0) at Severna Park (5-4)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Both teams have clinched playoff berths, the visiting Bruins the top seed in 4A East and the Falcons fourth in 3A South. Severna Park can spoil the Bruins' bid for their second unbeaten regular season since 1998 and go into the postseason with a winning record. Broadneck, with the county's best defense (yielding five points a game, with a school-record five shutouts), has won the last three meetings by a combined 69-6. Junior place-kicker Chris Desautels needs one more field goal for a county-record 10th in a season.

No. 13 Arundel (7-2) at South River (4-5)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Arundel quarterback Bobby Schram went over 2,000 yards passing last week and leads the metro area with 2,032 yards and 22 touchdown passes.

Glen Burnie (4-5) at No. 14 Old Mill (7-2)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Gophers hope to snap a seven-game losing streak in this series and finish at .500, but can their defense stop the quick bursts of sophomore running back Ryan Callahan? The host Patriots, who lead the series 16-11, are battling Arundel for the No. 2 seed in the 4A playoffs.

Southern (7-2) at Annapolis (3-6)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Already in the 2A South playoffs, Southern looks to get back on track after losing, 14-6, at Old Mill last week with their first win over the Panthers since the 1970s. The teams played in 1999 and 2000 for the first times in over 30 years and Annapolis won both games.

North County (0-9) at Meade (0-9)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The visiting Knights can end a 20-game losing streak. The Mustangs look to avoid their first 0-10 season.

Tomorrow

Pallotti (7-2, 3-2) at Archbishop Spalding (7-2, 3-2)

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: If Mike Rutland (1,275 yards, 17 touchdowns) can close the most productive season ever by a Cavaliers running back with a big game, Spalding can clinch third place in the MIAA C Conference and complete the school's best football season.
