Saint Stephen's vs. Bradenton Christian

Where: Joe Kinnan Field at Hawkins Stadium

Time: 7:30 p.m.

The scoop: The Falcons are looking to throw the ball more after staying grounded during last week's Kickoff Classic at St. Petersburg Admiral Farragut. So expect quarterback Logan Zoller to chuck to the ball around to guys such as Alex Freeland and Josh Breitwieser — though Cameron Ayala and Cameron Allen are two viable options out of the backfield. Saint Stephen's limited BCS' passing game last year, and will try to thwart it again. The Panthers return quarterback Eric Fridenberg and their leading tackler, Colton Goodwin, from a year ago, in an attempt to avenge last year's 14-8 loss to the Falcons. The fledgling rivals have split the first two meetings.

The score: Saint Stephen's 17, Bradenton Christian 10.
