Rosemount (5-0) at Farmington (2-3), 7 p.m.

Rosemount scouting report: The Irish attack is far different from what it was a year ago, when the team was racking up nearly 400 yards of offense per game. Quarterback Jared Hanson is directing an option offense that controls the ball and the clock. Rosemount is averaging about 24 points per game, a number that might be bigger but for turnover woes early in the season. The Irish defense has keyed the undefeated record. Led by senior LBs Sam Monson and Gabe Ames, the only two starters returning from 2014, the Irish have given up just 26 total points. They are holding opposing offenses to about 160 yards of total offense per game.

Farmington scouting report: Under first-year head coach Adam Fischer, things have been looking up for the Tigers, who had lost 15 consecutive games before winning back-to-back games over Eastview and Apple Valley. Junior QB Kole Hinrichsen guides a pass-heavy spread offense that is searching for a consistent running game. After a 2-1 start, Farmington ran into a cruel schedule, playing at Class 6A, No. 2 Lakeville North (a 49-14 loss) and at No. 5 Burnsville (42-6 loss). Now the Tigers host No. 4 Rosemount. If they can come through this one unscathed, both physically and mentally, they have a chance to finish strong.
