Quarterback Kentre Grier (545 yards passing, six TDs) and running back A.D. Cunningham (347 yards, four TDs) spark the SC offense. Sophomore Brayden Underwood has rushed for 272 yards and four scores for the Wildcats.Riverside (0-3) at George Washington (3-0): Another daunting task awaits the Warriors, who have been outscored 194-16 this season. In this game last year, GW boarded a 55-16 victory, rushing for 490 yards and six TDs.
Draven Riffe has run for 583 yards and nine touchdowns for the Patriots, who are tied for No. 2 in AAA. Will Jackson leads the Warriors (166 yards, one TD). Riverside is minus-6 in turnover ratio.Chapmanville (2-1) at Poca (1-2): One of the craziest games in the Cardinal Conference last year, as the Tigers rallied from a 20-0 halftime deficit to capture a 34-33 overtime victory.
Devin Wiley heads the Chapmanville offense with 329 yards rushing and 50 receiving. The Dots have leaned on first-year QB Justin Stewart (278 yards rushing, three TDs; 233 yards passing).Point Pleasant (2-0) at Logan (3-0): These unbeatens are right on top of each other in the AAA playoff ratings - the Big Blacks tied for ninth and the Wildcats 11th. Their scores are almost mirror images, too, with Point outscoring opponents 133-21 and Logan 130-33.
Cody Mitchell has run for 242 yards and four TDs for Point Pleasant and Aden Yates has thrown for 258 yards and five scores. For Logan, Worm Street has 284 yards and four TDs rushing and Josh Rein has grabbed 14 passes for 291 yards and three TDs.Greenbrier West (3-0) at Buffalo (0-3): The last thing the young, beat-up Bison needs is a visit from the No. 1 team in Class A. Junior QB Austin Hensley (shoulder) remains out and top receiver Gabe Garrison (concussion, knee) won't play tonight. Jordan Tucker, who ran for 323 yards against Poca last week, leads Buffalo.
"We're the only team that beat them before Wahama got them in the playoff [quarterfinals] last year,'' said Bison coach Mike Sawyer of the Cavaliers. "So they'll be looking for payback. They've only given up seven points in three games. They don't do a whole lot of fancy stuff, but they pound on you. We'll have to work hard, avoid mistakes and see if we can hang in there.''Herbert Hoover (1-2) at Tolsia (0-3): The Huskies hope to have their top running back (Shaun Dotson) and fullback (Colton Thomas) in the lineup after injuries forced them to miss last week's 21-0 loss at Class AAA Lewis County.
The teams have traded one-sided wins the last two seasons - Tolsia taking a 46-7 victory last year behind five TD passes from Dakota Robertson and Hoover earning a 39-8 conquest in 2011, forcing six turnovers and returning one for a score.Clay County (1-2) at Valley (2-0): The Greyhounds held on for a 36-31 victory over the Panthers last year. Keyshawn Payne (228 yards, one TD) tops Valley's balanced ground game.
