Rigby vs. Highland
7 p.m. Friday
Watch Live


They say iron sharpens iron. If that’s the case, this east Idaho matchup could cut through diamonds, as two top-five teams in 5A are set to face off in what’s essentially a District 5-6 championship. 

Last year’s state championship run seems like a distant memory for the Trojans, who are still searching for respect in the midst of an undefeated season. Quarterback Tiger Adolpho has nine touchdowns under his belt so far, but will face the biggest test of his first year as a starter in a stingy Highland defense. 

Highland, meanwhile, has its offense rolling behind running back Kaleb Demuzio and reestablished quarterback Easton Durham. Durham and Demuzio combined for 431 yards of total offense against Skyview a week ago. But Rigby allows a conference-best 15 points per game, easily the toughest Idaho defense the Rams have faced this year.

Rocky Mountain vs. Meridian
7 p.m. Friday


While Capital has locked up a Southern Idaho Conference East title, Rocky Mountain still has work to do in the West division. 

The Grizzlies will need to defeat the Warriors to secure their first-place standing, preserving an undefeated record en route to the playoffs. Head Coach Chris Culig’s squad won’t be easy to stop, with weapons galore on the offense. Quarterback Kobe Warr has totaled eight touchdowns on the year, while running back Jordan Erickson, the heart and soul of the offense, has scored in a multitude of ways both in the backfield and special teams. 

Meridian, meanwhile, proved feisty to start the year, winning three straight, including an upset over Mountain view 41-26. But a 49-21 loss to Eagle poked holes in Meridian’s claim to a division title. Quarterback Malakai Martinez, who’s dual-threat abilities has kept defenses guessing all year, will hope to add to his 13 total touchdowns on the year and keep the Warriors’ playoff hopes alive. 

Vallivue vs. Bishop Kelly
7 p.m. Friday


There’s a log jam in the 4A SIC, and something’s about to give. 

Vallivue, Emmett, Bishop Kelly and Nampa all sit at 4-1 in conference play with just two games left on the schedule. 

The Falcons have the best claim to the throne, going 6-1 overall throughout the year. But a 35-29 loss to Nampa complicates things, as the Knights will look to improve their shot at the district title. Casey Cope has Head Coach Lane Coffin’s team in the midst of the best season in decades, thanks to his dedication to the air game. Cope surpassed 1,000 yards passing on the season, but still can make an impact on the ground. 

Bishop Kelly remains reliably consistent, even in a year filled with inconsistencies. The Knights and quarterback Keegan Croteau average 31 points per game and have yet to drop a contest since a Week 1 loss to Emmett. 

Hillcrest vs. Skyline
7 p.m. Friday
Watch Live


Another matchup late in the season could have serious postseason implications. 

Skyline has proved to be one of the best squads in 4A, rolling to a 6-1 record on the year. But a tough matchup against Hillcrest could throw a wrench in the Grizzlies’ plan for a conference title. Skyline has remained undefeated against teams in its own classification and has scored at least 40 points four times this year. 

The Knights have yet to establish consistency, failing to string together a pair of wins since the season began. Still, Hillcrest turned heads in early weeks of the season, defeating Madison 42-28 and losing by just a point to Blackfoot. The Knights like to keep it on the ground, grinding out drives while tiring defenses. Running backs Tre Kofe and Keegan Porter lead that charge, a stark contrast to Skyline's dynamic offense. Grizzly quarterback Cade Marlow has Eli Ames and Connor Maloney over 300 yards on the season, while throwing 18 touchdowns himself.

Sugar-Salem vs. South Fremont
7 p.m. Friday


The Diggers, while still dominant, don’t seem to have the same firepower at their disposal from year’s past. Sugar-Salem has escaped some close calls this season, including a one-point win against Marsh Valley and an overtime thriller against Century. Nevertheless, the defending state champs are undefeated heading into a crucial Mountain Rivers Conference matchup. 

While Sugar-Salem doesn’t have veteran Crew Clark (broken collarbone) at its disposal this year, quarterback Kyzon Garner and receiver Brigham Lee have picked up the slack, combining for more than 1,000 combined all-purpose yards and 12 touchdowns. 

However, the Digger offense has been slow to start the game, leading to a conference-worst 22 points per game. The owner of the best offense in the conference? South Fremont. 

The Cougars will look to shake off a loss to Marsh Valley from two weeks ago which spoiled their previously perfect season. Quarterback Kaimen Peebles has been incredibly careful with the ball, throwing just three picks compared to 20 touchdowns. And before their loss to the Eagles, South Fremont failed to hit the 40-point mark just once. 

Bonners Ferry vs. Timberlake 
7 p.m. Friday


The Badgers hold the edge in the 3A Intermountain League, but Timberlake has the momentum heading into Friday. 

The Tigers demolished conference rival Kellogg last week 28-6. Quarterback Ashton Peightal averaged nearly 40 yards per throw, while the Timberlake running backs had a field day against a gassed Wildcat defense. 

The Badgers haven’t seen the gridiron since Oct. 9, but still have just one loss in-state loss on the record and no missteps in 3A competition. 

North Fremont vs. Ririe
7 p.m. Friday
Watch Live


The Bulldogs are in for a challenge Friday, with each of Ririe’s five losses coming in the form of shutouts, including a pair of back-to-back blanks leading into a matchup with the top 2A team in the state. 

North Fremont allows the fewest points per game in the Nuclear Conference and has the offense to back up a stellar defensive front. The Huskies haven’t scored below 20 all year, dropping a season high 44 against Filer to open the year. But North Fremont isn’t unbeatable. Last week, Aberdeen outgained the Huskies on offense, coming a touchdown shy of a major upset.

West Side vs. Aberdeen
7 p.m. Friday


The Pirates haven’t faced much challenge this season. Early in the season, West Side’s offense looked to be the biggest question mark, with slow starts putting the defending state champion’s perfect record in danger. 

But a 62-16 thrashing of Soda Springs put the concerns to rest, as the Pirates finally seemed to have found their footing. 

Oakley vs. Lighthouse Christian
7 p.m. Friday


Raft River sits comfortably in first place in the 1ADI Snake River Conference but Oakley and Lighthouse Christian are poised to make a run with one conference win apiece. 

The Hornets, who came a game shy of a state championship appearance last season, have an unstoppable offense the likes of which the Lions have yet to see at the 1ADI level. The Hornets boast the best point differential in the conference outsourcing opponents by 47 points. 

The Lions, meanwhile, escaped a tangle with the Grace Grizzlies last week, winning 38-22 thanks to the dynamic quarterback Collin Holloway and his trusted receivers. 

Kendrick vs. Deary
7 p.m. Friday


The 1ADI Whitepine League is Kendrick’s to win in the Tigers’ final game of the season. 

Kendrick is riding a four-game winning streak averaging 48 points per game, including a 74-point performance against Timebrline-Weippe two weeks ago. 

But the Mustangs hope to play spoiler, with the league’s second-best offense hot off a pair of 56-point outings against Wallace and Lewis County.
