OUTLOOK: Loyola (6-0, 1-0 MIAA A Conference) has been dominant this season, outscoring opponents by a combined 281-35. The Dons, led by QB Leon Kinnard and RB Terrance Garvin, have not scored fewer than 39 points in a game this season or allowed more than 14. However, they also have yet to play the likes of Mount St. Joseph (4-1, 2-0), which at times has shown similar dominance.

No. 8 Hereford at Milford Mill

WHEN: Saturday, 2 p.m.

OUTLOOK: Milford Mill (6-0, 5-0 in Baltimore County 4A-3A league) will look to continue its resurgence. The Millers, who last season lost five games by a combined 20 points, have shown they have learned to finish the job. Senior QB Kevin Fulton is a threat in the running and passing games. Hereford (4-2, 4-1) showed its toughness, rebounding from a close loss to rival Perry Hall to top conference rival Franklin. The Bulls are paced by RB Nick DePaola.
