When: 7 p.m., Friday

Where: Wantland Stadium, UCO

TV: Cox 3

Radio: KREF-AM 1400/normannorthlive.com

Records: Norman North 4-2, 3-0 District 6A-3; Edmond North 4-2, 3-0

Last week: Norman North 54, U.S. Grant 0; Edmond North 20, Yukon 9

Players to watch: Norman North — John Kolar, QB. With the loss of Alabama commitment David Cornwell for the season, Kolar has taken over at quarterback. So far, so good. He led a comeback victory against Yukon the night Cornwell went down and last week he was efficient against U.S. Grant. This will be his first test as the starter and the best defense he’s faced so far.

Edmond North — Luke Rossi, WR. The senior has five TD receptions this season and 30 receptions, which equals last season’s total. He’s a tough kid who has proven hard to cover in big moments.

Storylines: Norman North — Can the Timberwolves move the ball consistently? Edmond North’s defense has been playing really well in district play and there will be some differences with Kolar instead of Cornwell.

Edmond North — Can the Huskies outscore Norman North if it turns into a shootout? The offense has been a little inconsistent so far. The defense, though, has been stellar. Keep it low scoring and Edmond North could score

The pick: Edmond North 28, Norman North 24
