FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – With only two weeks of regular season football remaining conference races are tightening up with huge match-ups looming this Friday in the SAC and Northeast 8.
This week The News-Sentinel prep writer Justin Kenny and WANE-TV sports director Glenn Marini break down the area’s top games.
In the SAC the Victory Bell is very much up for grab as Snider (7-0) hosts Bishop Dwenger (6-1). A win by Snider would earn the Panthers the SAC title. A victory by Dwenger would mean the Saints control their SAC destiny in week nine against Wayne.
In other SAC action Bishop Luers and Homestead will meet for the first time. Homestead will be looking to limit Ohio State-bound Austin Mack who has tallied 10 total touchdowns in the last two weeks.
In the Northeast 8 both New Haven (5-2, 3-2) and East Noble (6-1, 4-1) will look to keep their conference title hopes alive. Both teams need help from Bellmont’s opponents to earn at least a share of the first-ever NE8 title.
