Preview box: Bradenton Prep at Tampa Berkeley Prep

Bradenton Prep at Tampa Berkeley Prep

Time: 7:30 p.m.

The scoop: The Buccaneers won last year's game soundly, but the Patriots return almost all of their big offensive line, as well as Zach Hammond at quarterback. Tervaris Hines (flanker) and Jared Williams (tailback) also return on offense — though the Patriots still have some pieces to fill in on defense. The Class 2B Bucs should be a good test for the Class 1B Patriots, who rebounded from last year's loss and rolled all the way to the state semifinal. Improved line play should keep Bradenton Prep in this one.

The score: Tampa Berkeley Prep 28, Bradenton Prep 14.
