Roscoe and Highland will be trying to win their Week 3 games in front of their exes when both schools celebrate homecoming Friday, while Blackwell tries to stay the only unbeaten team in Nolan County this weekend.
Roscoe seeks its first win after an 0-2 start, with losses to Hawley and Stamford, when it hosts Miles, while Highland (1-1) hosts Bronte after losing to Blackwell by a score of 27-24 last week.
This will be the first time Highland and Bronte have met since the latter school dropped from 11-man to six-man football this year.
Bronte is off to a good start since making the transition with a 2-0 record and wins over Rising Star and Loraine, but will be an underdog against Highland.
Roscoe is taking on Miles, which is 2-0 with wins over Ranger and Roby so far.
Roscoe has faced stiffer competition as its two opponents have gone a combined 4-0.
Hawley and Stamford are also considered two of the top teams in District 3-2A, Division I this year, while Miles is a member of 8-2A, Division II.
Roscoe will be competing in District 7-2A, D-II, which is considered one of the top D-II districts with Albany and Hamlin also in the mix.
Blackwell hosts Newcastle as the Hornets will try to start the season 3-0 for the second straight year, when they kick off at 7:30 Friday.
Blackwell takes on a Newcastle team off to an 0-2 start this season.
