One of the most difficult chores for Poca on Friday will be containing a Buffalo offense that put 45 points on the board in its opener against Parkersburg Catholic, a 45-0 win.
The Bison were certainly balanced, rushing for 177 yards and passing for 170 behind fourth-year starting quarterback Levi Jordan.
In his first game, Jordan hit on 8 of 9 passes for those 170 yards and completed four TD passes to three different players. He makes his 27th straight start under center Friday.
"Jordan's the one you've got to look at No. 1,'' Lemley said of defending the Bison. "He buys a lot of time at quarterback, either if he's in the shotgun or under center. When he wants to throw the ball, he's elusive, hard to get hold of.
"Their receivers run their patterns well and stay on their patterns until they get open. He's got a strong enough arm to hit them. Also, they've got this veer action or option action, and he can run the ball well. We're going to have to keep him off the field as much as possible and the control it on offense a little bit ourselves.''
