No. 1 Randallstown (1-0) vs. Eastern Tech (1-0)

Site: CCBC-Essex

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: The top-ranked Rams could face a tough road game against the unranked Mavericks, who are capable of an upset. Randallstown opened with a 36-6 romp over Southwestern. Eastern Tech defeated C. Milton Wright, 26-7. Tech's wing-T, with RB Brandon Myers, will be hard-pressed to accumulate yardage and points against a Rams defense led by DE Melvin Alaeze, LB Bryan Parker and DB Jamarri McCullough. On the other side of the ball, Tech defensive backs Tommy Farmer and Jamaar Davis could be in for a busy night against a Rams offense led by QB Marcus McLain and RB Judah Green.

John Carroll (0-1) at Bel Air (1-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: John Carroll needs to figure out a way to slow Bel Air QB Andrew Berry and his twin brother, wide receiver Adam. Andrew ran for two touchdowns and threw for one - to Adam - in a 55-0 rout of Dundalk last week. The Patriots' defense played well at times during a 28-18 setback to Joppatowne last Friday but still allowed 329 yards rushing. Dane Frank led John Carroll with 184 yards rushing and made numerous big plays to keep the Patriots close.

No. 11 Severna Park (1-0) at South River (1-0)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Coach J.P. Hines is hoping his Falcons don't suffer a letdown in their visit to Edgewater after their 13-7 upset over highly touted Derrick Williams and Eleanor Roosevelt last week. The host Seahawks, 5-5 last year, boast one of the top running back duos in the area: Mike Evans and Mike Walters. Evans and Walters combined for 179 yards rushing and four touchdowns in a 61-0 rout of Glen Burnie to give coach Mike Heatherly a winning debut. Evans and Walters will be running against a quick-to-the-ball, hard-hitting Severna Park defense led by 250-pound linemen Chris Anthony and Tim Hackmann and linebackers Andrew Ferris, Mark Otto and Isiah Wallace..

No. 5 Gilman (1-0) vs. DeMatha (1-0)

Site: PG County Sports & Learning Complex Field, Landover

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Outlook: A young Gilman team lost, 15-7, to the Stags last year in the rain on the same field. DeMatha, ranked No. 1 by The Washington Post, opened with a 39-7 rout of H.D. Woodson (D.C.) last week. Gilman beat No. 12 Dunbar, 28-14. Coming off a 12-0 season as the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champions for the third time in four seasons, the Stags have several sterling running backs, led by Anthony Wiseman, one of three with Division I scholarships. RB Jeff Allen also anchors the Stags' secondary, which Gilman plans to test with its running game led by junior QB Marco Simmons and running backs Sean Price and Ben Eaton Jr. Gilman defensive ends Barney Ehrmann and Eugene Sims will do their best to keep the Stags' running attack inside.
