This is far and away the state's most-played rivalry, with 135 previous meetings between these teams along the Baraboo River in Sauk County. Speaking of the Baraboo River, the schools play for the Baraboo River Jug, which has been awarded since 1983, when the Baraboo school board presented the Reedsburg school board with the Jug, saying it was filled with “Baraboo River water, Baraboo River mud and a few Baraboo tears.” The trophy has gone to the winner of each year’s game ever since. The old adage, "Throw the records out the window" certainly applies in this rivalry, including two years ago when an at-the-time one-win Reedsburg team shocked Baraboo 21-20, which ultimately cost the Thunderbirds a conference title. Reedsburg enters with just win in this one, while Baraboo has designs on competing for a conference title.
Lodi and Columbus are both undefeated, with Columbus the top-ranked team in Division 5 and Lodi the second-ranked squad in Division 4. Both have been dominant this year, with Lodi coming off a 44-14 replacement game victory over Milwaukee Academy of Science. Columbus has won via blowout every game, including five straight running clock victories. This one is for the Capitol Conference lead, and likely a number one seed on the line.
Menasha and Notre Dame were the clear best teams in the FRCC-South last year. We expected them to be the clear top two teams in the FRCC-South this year. And to this point, Menasha and Notre Dame have been the clear top two teams in the FRCC-South. Menasha won the head-to-head last season and claimed the title in the league. Both are ranked in the top ten this season in Division 3.
A couple undefeated teams who are tied atop the East Central Conference, with the winner getting a huge leg up heading into the last couple games of the season. Ben Fritsch is putting up huge numbers for Port Washington after taking home conference Offensive Player of the Year honors a year ago. Plymouth counters with a running game that is led by Brett Shutter. The teams are looking very similar so far, with Port Washington having a 170-21 advantage in league games while Plymouth is at 171-25.
It is a little surprising for a conference to have three undefeated teams in league play at this point in the season, but that is exactly the case for the CWC-Large. Two of those meet up in this one, as each has dominated it's way to a 4-0 conference mark. Koehler Kilty is averaging 125 yards per game on the ground for Stratford, while Wittenberg-Birnamwood quarterback Nathan Waupekenay is a dual-threat who has just shy of 1200 total yards this year.
