Weekend Blitz: Renowned rivalry matchups and more playoff action

Oct. 27—Two 8-man originals. The Eagles are consistently near the top, the Patriots are trying to fight their way up to that level.

A powerhouse playoff matchup between a pair of teams unfamiliar with each other.

The Cougars' 21-20 OT win over the No. 2 Rams in the 2019 playoffs shows that nothing is guaranteed in B North.

These are not the same teams that met in Week 1, when the Black Bears won 34-28. Both should be better.

Oxford County is the only place the Seagulls have lost this year. The third time might be the charm, but the Falcons are formidable.

The Blue Devils are undoubtedly the favorites, but so were the Red Eddies in 2017.

It's difficult to decide which team is favored in this rivalry matchup.

Since their bye, the Knights have faced the gauntlet of Medomak Valley, Winthrop and Lisbon.

The Ponies have the inside track to No. 1 in Class D. The Raiders have played well but have been stuck at No. 7.

The Red Storm have some perplexing losses this season but are still good enough to be dangerous to the unbeaten Vikings.
