6-man: (3) Kit Carson at (5) Arickaree/Woodlin

Game time: 7 p.m. kick.

Station: KAT Country 98.3 FM

On the call: Marc Romero

Romero on the matchup: "Two teams that return a ton of experience from 2017. Arickaree/Woodlin doesn’t have any stats posted, but the names are basically the same for a group that has experience playing together in all sports. Kit Carson showed just how much offense they have (nearly 1200 returning passing yards and over 1900 rushing yards return from 2017) with the 73 points posted in week one."

4A: Grand Junction Central at Grand Junction

Game time: 7 p.m. kick

Station: The Team 1340

On the call: Jim Davis (Play by Play), Nate Primrose (Color)

Davis on the matchup: "The Tigers are coming off a 31-12 loss at Montrose, with the Warriors beating previously 6th ranked Fruita Monument 13-9. It was Central's first win against the Wildcats since 2009. Grand Junction beat Central last year 21-0."

Rocky Ford at Lamar

Game time: 7 p.m. kick

Station: KLMR 920

On the call: Ethan Denton

Denton on the matchup: "Both teams are coming off losses in their opener. The host Savages look to take care of the ball much better, as four first-half turnovers doomed them at Limon last Friday. Rocky Ford's spread offense had a hard time getting started two weeks ago against Florence and so this game may simply come down to who executes better for four quarters. Whoever can control field position will be in a good position to win."

4A: (3) Windsor at Ponderosa

Game time: 7 p.m.

Station: Orange and Blue 760

On the call: Chad Andrus (Play by play), Matt McChesney (Color)

Coloradoan's Kevin Lytle on the matchup: "Windsor will continue to pound the run game like always. They had six different guys carry the ball last week. Ponderosa has to break through a Windsor defense that completely shut down Vista Ridge a week ago."

Hear the game on Orange and Blue 760 or through their stream via iHeartRadio.

2A: Weld Central at University

Game time: 7 p.m.

Station: 1310 KFKA

On the call: Clark Johnson (Play by play), Mike Danson (Color)

Preps director Tanner Schwindt on the matchup: "Weld Central will be looking to bounce back after a tough opening loss against Englewood and look to find a quarterback in the process. University on the other hand is 1-1 and if they want to try and put together back to back wins they need to rely on that running game and an aggressive pass rush."
