BEREA BULLDOGS at GREER YELLOW JACKETS

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Rankings: Greer is No. 5 in 3A South Carolina Media Poll.

Records

Greer 6-0 overall, 3-0 Region II-AAA

Berea 2-4 overall, 1-2 Region II-AAA

Series: Greer leads 27-2

Last year: Greer beat Berea, 70-0

Coaches

Greer: Will Young 75-35 10th season

Berea: Wayne Green 2-4 1st season, 207-120 overall

What to look for: Greer is off to its best start since winning the state championship in 1993. Mario Cusano (QB), Adrian McGee (RB), Dorian Lindsey (WR) are the big weapons but what makes this Greer team so much more dangerous than in the past is it is team-oriented and not one-player dimensional. Defensively, Greer may be fielding one of its best, if not best, in the past 20 years, according to defensive coordinator Travis Perry, also the head coach of the 1993 state championship team. Berea relies on running back Stevie Williams for most of its offense.

Line: Greer by 56. Total points 72.

RIVERSIDE WARRIORS AT BYRNES REBELS

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Ranking: Byrnes is No. 2 in 4A South Carolina Media Poll

Records

Riverside 2-4 overall, 1-1 Region II-AAAA.

Byrnes 5-1 overall, 2-0 Region II-AAA

Coaches

Riverside: Phil Smith 2-15, 2nd season.

Byrnes: Brian Lane 5-1 at Byrnes.

What to look for: Riverside quarterback Ryan Cerano and dual threat Emanuel Jackson, running and receiving are the big threats for the Warriors. Riverside won its first Region II-AAA game last week in a thriller. Byrnes has outscored opponents 92-6 in its two home games at Nixon Field. Riverside has not scored on Byrnes in the past three years.

Line: Byrnes 49. Total points: 59.
