We've previewed the 10 matchups you should keep your eye on this Friday night

Sandpoint vs. Lewiston
7 p.m. Friday
Watch live


After a two-game skid, the Bengals are looking to rebound from a Week 4 upset against the Lakeland Hawks. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are on the hunt for their second win of the season after defeating 5A Lake City two weeks ago. 

Lewiston faces its second-straight 4A opponent in two weeks. Against the Hawks under the lights of the Kibbie Dome, the Bengal offense sputtered, with quarterback Kash lang gaining 206 yards, completing just 37% of his passes. 

The Bulldogs will be hitting the field after poor air quality canceled a visit from the Minico Spartans last week. Quarterback Parker Pettitte will look to replicate his two-touchdown performance against Lake City from Sept. 11, as the Bulldogs look to shake off the rust.

Idaho Falls vs. Pocatello
7 p.m. Friday
Watch live


The 5A classification has not been kind to the Tigers. Four straight losses have doomed Idaho Falls’ playoff chances, marking the worst start to a season since the team’s last stint at 5A in 2015. The Tigers went 0-9 that year. 

If Idaho Falls wants to prevent a repeat of history, they’ll have to take down a spunky Pocatello team that strung three wins together to open the year before falling to Highland 31-7 last week. 

Indian quarterback Zach Park threw for 103 yards and a touchdown last Friday against the Rams. A bulk of that production came on an 82-yard bomb to Casey Burner for the Indians’ lone score. Park should have an easier time against a more malleable Tiger defense that allowed 180 yards through the air last week against Century.

Bonneville vs. Skyline
7 p.m. Friday
Watch live


There’s a new king in 4A.

The Skyline Grizzlies knocked off the Blackfoot Broncos last Friday, just days after Blackfoot earned first-place votes in both the statewide coaches and media polls. 

The Grizzlies’ lone loss on the season came against the defending 5A state champs, and quarterback Cade Marlow and the Skyline offense are on a roll, averaging a conference-best 31 points per game. 

Bonneville, meanwhile, has had a nightmare start to the year, dropping three consecutive games, including a 56-0 shutout against Century Sept. 4. To make matters worse, four players in the Bees' locker room tested positive for COVID-19, cancelling last week’s scheduled game against Madison.

Nampa vs. Emmett
7 p.m. Friday
Watch live


Two games in, the Bulldogs still remain an unproven enigma, with their 1-1 record showing an incredibly high ceiling and low floor for a Nampa program fighting through a shortened season. 

Nampa dropped a 42-13 contest to Bishop Kelly last Friday, failing to continue their momentum after a 35-7 win against Columbia to open the year. The Nampa offense kept pace with the Knights, gaining 324. But two turnovers and a 33% third-down conversion rate kept the Bulldog offense from reaching the end zone. The Bulldogs’ rushing attack, led by Ryan Schuler, will hope to replicate its 430-yard performance against Columbia from two weeks ago. 

The Nampa defense will need to step up should it hope to stop a prolific Emmett offense. The Huskies, behind quarterback Caden Young and running back Westyn Smith, have yet to score below 40 points since their Week 1 loss to Homedale. Young has tossed just one interception on the season compared to eight touchdowns and 771 yards. Smith, on the ground, has tallied 509 yards this season and five scores.

Moscow vs. Bonners Ferry
7 p.m. PST Friday


Moscow who?

The Bears are back on the gridiron, somewhat surprisingly. Before the start of the 2020 season, Moscow High School announced its athletic programs would not compete against other schools, instead transitioning to an intramural format.

But the Moscow School District Board of Trustees reversed that decision Sept. 1 , giving the Bears a handful of games.

Senior outside linebacker Jonah Elliss will be the playmaker to look out for on the Bears’ defense, as Bonners Ferry looks to build on its two-game winning streak after a narrow 14-13 victory over Kellogg two weeks ago. 

Weiser vs. Fruitland
7 p.m. Friday


Some mid-week drama shook the 3A Snake River Valley Conference, as Fruitland Head Coach Ryan Tracy was suspended two games for leaking parts of the Weiser football playbook to the Emmett coaching staff. The Huskies went on to defeat the Wolverines 42-14. Along with the suspension, the Grizzlies were fined $1,000 by the District Three Board of Control.  

Weiser will look to enact its revenge, as the Wolverines (1-2) continue to fight for footing in the SRV. Fruitland, 3-0 on the year, averages a 3A-best 42 points per game, thanks to an elite rushing attack. Last week against New Plymouth, Fruitland tallied 349 yard of offense, 331 of which came on the ground. Senior Jacob Locker led the charge in the Grizzlies’ wing-t formation, garnering 103 yards on 13 carries. Aden Simmons followed suit with 92 yards, while Dylan Stelling tallied 54. 

The Wolverines also feature a run-heavy offense, led by Burke Jack. Jack ran for 151 yard in Weiser’s nailbiter loss to Filer last week. Quarterback Brett Spencer will need to open up the field should Jack want to find any room in the trenches, as the Fruitland defense shut down New Plymouth’s running attack last week, allowing just 121 yards. 

New Plymouth vs. Aberdeen
6 p.m. Friday


Despite a misstep against undefeated South Fremont, the Aberdeen Tigers have shown consistency through the first quarter of the season, averaging 21 points per game against a wide variety of opponents. And after wiping away three allowed touchdowns against the Cougars, Aberdeen managed to keep pace with South Fremont in the second half.

The Pilgrims, meanwhile, will look to rebound after a tough loss to Fruitland a week ago. The Pilgrims do most of their work on the ground, with quarterback Casey Arritola completing just three passes last week. Spencer Lyman leads New Plymouth in a triple-threat attack. Lyman has tallied 160 yard  and two touchdowns on the year. Running backs Erin Vian and Javon Lindeman have 154 and 138 to their name, respectively. 

Idaho City vs. Notus
7 p.m. Friday
Watch live


The 3-0 Pirates will look to continue their momentum through the 1ADI Western Idaho Conference, hot off a 44-0 blowout against Tri-Valley a week ago. In that game, quarterback Kaeden Clemens threw a pair of touchdowns, scoring a third on the ground. 

The Wildcats will need their secondary to play its best game yet and lock down Mack Shimondle, who caught four passes for 56 yard and a pair of scores against the Titans.

Lighthouse Christian vs. Raft River
7 p.m. Friday


The undefeated Lions keep improving with every passing week, as the offense ramps up three games in. Collin Holloway went off against Mackay last week, throwing for 302 yards and four touchdowns. The Lions’ air raid will be on full display Friday, as the Trojans look to get back in the swing of things after a week-long break.

Raft River averages just one less point than Lighthouse Christian per game, and sit just one game being the second-place Lions in the 1ADI Snake River Conference. 

Dietrich vs. North Gem
7 p.m. Friday


The Cowboys pulled off the biggest upset among the 1A ranks last week, knocking off the previously undefeated Rockland Bulldogs 33-22. 

North Gem’s Bridger Hatch and Brett Yost each eclipsed 100 yard on the ground. The Cowboys’ defense, however, allowed 260 passing yards, which could be an area of concern for Friday.

The Cowboys will face their next monumental task in undefeated Dietrich. The Blue Devils rank second in the latest coaches poll and tie for first in the media poll, thanks in large part to the third-highest scoring offense at the 1ADII level. Dietrich has yet to score less than 30 points in a game, and blew out Hansen last week 74-20.
