The Kwik Trip Game of the Week allows you, the fans, to pick what you feel is the biggest high school football game in the state each week. Not only will that game get featured on WisSports.net, but WSN General Manager Travis Wilson will make it his destination that week, with updates, photos, videos, and stories from the big game.
Fans can vote once per day, and voting goes through Wednesday at 1 pm.
And of course, no trip to a big game in Wisconsin would be complete without a stop or two at Kwik Trip!!
Kwik Trip is a family-owned company with more than 700 stores around the Midwest, and has the best selection of snacks, drinks, and of course gas to fuel your pre- or post-game needs. So what will it be for you...glazers, chocolate milk, or maybe Travis' favorite, the Spicy Chicken Sandwich!
Lourdes Academy has been the cream of the crop in the Trailways Conference the last couple years, but this may be the year the Knights' run of dominance comes to an end. Losing some extremely talented offensive weapons, Lourdes is still working on re-tooling, with some serious ebbs and flows so far. After opening with a 52-18 domination of North Fond du Lac, the Knights were shutout by Reedsville last week, 40-0. Randolph could be the team most likely to challenge Lourdes in the Trailways, but the Rockets also took one on the chin last week in the final non-conference tune up, falling to Hilbert 42-6.
The Eastern Suburban Conference race should be extremely competitive in 2021, and several of the expected contenders have looked very good in non-league play. Conference action gets underway this week, however, and a big one between Markesan and Waterloo highlights the schedule. Both teams are undefeated so far, as Waterloo running back Eugene Wolf is third in the state with 493 rushing yards. Markesan's defense has looked very good, and will be a tough test for the Pirates.
It remains to be seen if they can make much of a dent in the always-tough Fox Valley Association, but you have to be impressed with what Oshkosh West has done in the last six months. In the spring the Wildcats went 4-3, and are 1-1 in the early going, including a narrow 17-14 loss to Verona last week. Neenah is flying high coming off a 35-21 win over old rival Menasha, and has games coming up soon at Fond du Lac and Appleton North, but the Rockets can't take their eyes off what is going on this week.
Amherst looks to be Amherst once again this year, as the Falcons are 2-0 with impressive victories over Saint Croix Falls and last week over larger Medford. Shiocton has victories over Bonduel and Crivitz so far this year, but those programs are not at the level of Amherst, and the Chiefs will more than have their work cut out for them this week.
Spencer/Columbus Catholic is coming off a 38-0 shutout loss to Colby last week, but the Rockets are traditionally a strong ballclub under head coach Jason Gorst. Wittenberg-Birnamwood is one of the surprise stories of the non-conference, coming off a one-win season in 2020. The Chargers hammered Northland Pines 53-0 in Week 1, then opened plenty of eyes with a 47-14 shellacking of Iola-Scandinavia last week. The CWC-Large is an incredibly tough league, and the upcoming schedule is very challenging for Wittenberg-Birnamwood, but they can get off on the right foot and make another statement against a program like Spencer/Columbus Catholic.
