Folsom quarterback Jake Jeffrey throws four of his five touchdown passes in the first half as the No. 1 Bulldogs defeat the No. 18 Titans 56-20 in a nonleague game in South Sacramento. Folsom outscored Burbank 42-6 after the score was tied 14-14 in the first quarter.
Highlands quarterback Isaiah Tenette amassed 839 rushing yards in the first three games of the season.
