By Travis Wilson

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, 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!

Mineral Point at Cedar Grove-Belgium

Mineral Point has certainly had some tough breaks this year and some very close games have left the Pointers with a 4-5 overall record heading into the playoffs. They have some extremely talented players that can cause problems, however, and could make things tough on second-seeded Cedar Grove-Belgium. The Rockets feature one of the top passing attacks in the state behind quarterback Logan Arrowood and leading receiver Sam Peiffer.

Saint Croix Central at Ellsworth

Ellsworth has won 17 straight games over the last two years, including a 40-7 decision over Saint Croix Central just two weeks ago. Saint Croix Central has some talented players with a strong tradition, including All-American lineman Carson Hinzman, who is deciding between Wisconsin and Ohio State. Ellsworth hasn't scored less than 34 points in any game this year behind a strong offense led by our top-ranked senior running back Max Grand.

Kaukauna at Hartford

A couple 6-3 teams who had hopes of challenging for league titles but finished down the standings a bit. Scoring hasn't generally been a problem for either team, as each average 30 points per game. Kaukauna has played a couple different quarterbacks this season, but whoever plays there can depend on an explosive reliable target in receiver Carson Sippel. Hartford has turned a bit more to the running game, including 1100-yard rusher A.J. Pepin, 700-yard rusher Noah Deibert, plus Quinten Hornada, who has chipped in with 405 yards.

Prairie du Chien at Richland Center

These teams met back in Week Five when Richland Center scored a 13-7 victory in overtime thanks to a 13-yard Bryce Hillers touchdown run. That victory was a big reason Richland Center finished alone in second place in the SWC and got a home game in Level 1 of the playoffs. The teams also went to overtime last fall, though Prairie du Chien scored the win in that one, 14-12. Richland Center has not won a playoff game (not counting the culminating event last year) since 1992.

Saint Croix Falls at Spencer/Columbus Catholic

Spencer/Columbus Catholic has played one of the toughest schedules in Division 5 and has seen some up-and-down results. They did beat Bangor in a replacement game, but couldn't get past some of the other top teams on their schedule. Saint Croix Falls dropped three straight to begin the year but has won five of the last six as the offense behind 1400-yard rusher Dayo Oye and quarterback Brady Belisle has gotten hot.
