The Bee’s Joe Davidson peeks at five high school football games (all start Friday between 7-8 p.m. unless noted):
No. 1 Folsom (2-0) at Oakdale (2-0) – The Sacramento Bee’s top dogs take on The Modesto Bee’s top team at “The Corral” where the run-heavy Mustangs look to keep pace with pass-first Folsom.
No. 6 Rocklin (2-0) at No. 15 Whitney (1-1) – The Quarry Bowl has become one of the region’s best rivalries, and the Thunder’s defensive prowess faces Whitney’s prolific offense for city bragging rights.
No. 8 Grant (1-1) at No. 9 Capital Christian (2-0) – The biggest game in the history of Capital Christian – yes, bigger than D-V championship games – is not at all lost on Grant, which feeds on a challenge.
Never miss a local story.
No. 12 Jesuit (0-2) vs. No. 16 Christian Brothers (0-1) – Played Saturday night at Hughes Stadium, the 47th Holy Bowl expects to be festive, fun and high scoring with a crowd exceeding 15,000.
No. 20 Vista del Lago (1-1) at No. 19 Monterey Trail (1-0) – The Eagles have a runner in Dominick Norris, coming off a 304-yard effort, and Monterey Trail has speed on defense to make this all the more interesting.
