Stillwater at Roseville, 7 p.m.
First impressions: Roseville and Stillwater met in Week 1 from 2005-08 and the Ponies won three of four. The most recent meeting featured a wild Stillwater comeback at Roseville. The Ponies rallied to tie by scoring nine points in the final 1:06 of regulation and won 29-28 in double overtime.
Roseville runner/receiver Tommy Arcand: “Last year was great [reaching the Class 6A semifinals] but we need to put that behind us and just keep it up. We’ll have to fight all season long to prove we’re still that team.”
Stillwater coach Beau LaBore: “Our guys have always had high expectations. We’ve won three of the past five conference championships, so these young men have grown up watching high-caliber football. I expect them to set their sights no lower.”
