last season, boone central handed norfolk catholic their only regular season loss, and then beat the knights again in the state quarterfinals , 23-17, on their way to the class c1 state championship. in 2012, catholic won their last state title against -- you guessed it -- the cardinals. only one team has been within 28 points of norfolk catholic this season. "i think it will be a very good football game," said norfolk catholic head coach jeff bellar."they're very good. we're similar in some ways. offensively we've both been able to move the football quite a bit. defensively they run a little bit different defense than us but again, they've done awful well. it's not a do or die game but obviously it's a big football game and hit has turned into a good rivalry. they were the state champs last year. two or three years ago we played them in a close game and beat them in the state championship game. we've had some big, big games against each other and it's been good for both schools." kickoff is at 7 o'clock. we'll have the highlights at ten. that's just one of five games we'll show you at ten. also in nebraska, fourth-ranked creighton tries to stay unbeaten at hartington, newcastle. 6 and 1 wynot is home against 5

"baylor. baylor, man i can't explain those guys man," said isu linebacker jordan harris, "they got a good quarterback. they got more weapons for the quarterback to throw it to. they got the best running backs we're going to play out of these three teams and their quarterback can run so that's a headache."
the cyclones 71-7. isu and baylor kickoff at 11 am on saturday. the cubs lost to the mets 8 to 3 wednesday night at wrigley field and were swept 4 games to none in the national league championship series. the mets move on to the world series for the fifth time and for the first time since 2000. after beating the pirates and cardinals in the playoffs -- the cubs never led in the nlcs. still, with 97 regular season wins, the future is bright. "of course we wanted to go further and of course it's highly disappointing however you gotta look at the positives that are involved and that's what i want them to really focus on when they go home and they have a chance to reflect individually and as a group all that we've accomplished this year," said cubs manager joe maddon. the mets will play either the royals or the blue jays in game 1 of the world series on tuesday. game six of the alcs is
