Northwestern @W.E.B. Du Bois

WHEN: Tomorrow, 2:30 p.m.

OUTLOOK: Northwestern proved itself to be the class of Baltimore City's Division II last weekend with a 36-0 win over host Reginald Lewis. Now, the Wildcats (7-1, 6-0) can sew up a league title by beating W.E.B. DuBois (6-2, 5-1). Northwestern has scored 34 points per game the past four weeks. It will be tested, however, by a Panthers defense that has allowed just six points in its past three games.

THE BALTIMORE SUN'S PICK: Northwestern

No. 8 Gilman @No. 11 Mount St. Joseph

WHEN: Tomorrow, 3 p.m.

OUTLOOK: Two teams of similar talent sorely need to win to stay in contention with Loyola for the MIAA A Conference title. Gilman (8-2, 2-1) lost last week to Loyola, 31-20. After dropping two of three, Mount St. Joseph (5-2, 3-1) beat Calvert Hall last week, 27-7. The Gaels took last year's game, 17-14, and are 4-0 at their renovated home stadium.

THE BALTIMORE SUN'S PICK: Mount St. Joseph

FOOTBALL

No. 15 Edmondson vs. No. 3 Dunbar

WHERE: Poly

WHEN: Tomorrow, 7 p.m.

OUTLOOK: Led by All-Metro RB Tavon Austin, Dunbar (7-1, 6-0 Baltimore City Division I) has won 20 straight games against city opponents. The Poets, who are scoring 43 points per game, should make it to 21, but not without a fight. Edmondson (5-2, 4-1) is on a roll, outscoring its past four opponents by a combined 164-50. The Red Storm is led by RB Terrence Wilson and sophomore QB Jerry Lovelocke.
