Tiny Joe's KFAN/BMTN prep games of the week

It's week five of the high school football season and the games of the week feature plenty of teams looking for sweet revenge. Is this the week that teams like Litchfield, Stillwater, and Rochester John Marshall finally break losing streaks against dominant opponents?
Publish date:

Minnetonka @ Wayzata
This is an in-state border battle. Last year's game was won by Wayzata with a miracle finish. I will be doing play-by-play for this one, so watch the live stream Friday night at 7:00 p.m. at FoxSportsNorth.com

Rosemount @ Lakeville South
The Irish are looking to bounce back after losing last week to Lakeville North. Most will argue that the South side of Lakeville is better at football.

Glencoe-Silver Lake @ Litchfield

Two defensive-minded teams going head-to-head in the middle of Minnesota is always fun. The Dragons typically play well at home, but Glencoe-Silver Lake has won eight straight in this series. Litchfield head coach Jon Johnson just earned his 100th win.

Stillwater @ Mounds View
This rivalry has been lopsided since 2006 as Mounds View has won seven straight, including the Ponies' only three-losses over the last two years. Now Stillwater takes on the Mustangs with a QB making his second start.

Mankato West @ Rochester John Marshall
West is a Class-4A powerhouse and they've had John Marshall's number since 2008. The Scarlets have outscored the Rockets 138-35 over their last three match-ups.

54 teams are still undefeated after five weeks of football, but only five make the list on Joe Nelson's week five prep football rankings. One of the top five is not undefeated.
