Players/Matchups to Watch:

Prep’s Defense versus Pillow’s Offense:

The Patriots defense had an impressive outing last week holding an explosive Forest Bearcat offense to only a field goal all game. Prep so far on the year has only allowed 17 points through three games, and each week it seems as if the Patriots have thrown different schemes at opposing offenses that they haven’t seemed to be able to figure out. For the Mustangs to have a chance in this game they will have to score on the Patriots defense which is a test that not many schools have been able to do so far.
