Today

Arundel (1-0) at Chesapeake-AA (0-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The Wildcats fly into Lake Shore with quarterback Bobby Schram in the pilot's seat. He threw three touchdown passes and ran for another in last week's 38-8 romp over Meade. They will face the Cougars, who may be smarting from their season-opening 33-6 loss at No. 6 Broadneck on Monday. It's never easy to play two football games in five days, especially when coming off a loss and facing a good team.

South River (1-0) at Severna Park (0-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Often the team coming off a win has an edge over a team coming off a loss, but not in this case. While South River knocked off Glen Burnie, 27-16, last week, the Falcons are confident after staying with the state's No. 2- ranked team in Eleanor Roosevelt before bowing, 18-7. The Falcons' speed and defense may be too much for the Seahawks to handle.

No. 3 Old Mill (1-0) at Meade (0-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: After being aired out by Arundel, 38-8 in their opener, the host Mustangs now have to deal with the well-balanced run/pass attack of the Patriots, who opened with a 44-6 romp at North County. Old Mill was led by RB Devin Bradley, who had 136 yards rushing with two touchdowns.

Glen Burnie (0-1) at No. 6 Broadneck (1-0)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The host Bruins introduced junior QB Tony Marino and sophomore RB Brandon Johnson to varsity football Monday with great success in a 33-6 win over Chesapeake-AA. The two backs led a typical Bruins game-clinching second half with 20 unanswered points, but they may not need a strong finish in this one with all their talent.

Annapolis (1-0) at North County (0-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: Last week's 44-6 North County loss to No. 3 Old Mill extended the Knights' losing streak to 12 games. Their last win was a 48-19 victory over South River in the ninth game of the 2001 season. Their chances of ending it this week are very slim against the Panthers' quick-striking pro wing T led by QB Larry Beavers.

Southern-AA (1-0) at Northeast (0-1)

Time: 7:15 p.m.

Outlook: The host Eagles and their run-only attack were shut out, 13-0, by St. Mary's last week and may not score again this week against an equally strong Bulldogs defense, led by LBs Tony Belcher and Mike Monklien.

St. Mary's (1-0) at C. Milton Wright (0-1)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: How speedy, shifty Donta Sylve (5 feet 9, 185 pounds) runs against the Mustangs' 3-4 defense that averages 260 pounds up front is the key for the Saints to win on the road in Harford County.

Charter (Del.) School (0-0) at Archbishop Spalding (1-0)

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Coming off a season-opening 49-0 win over Colonel Richardson, the confidence of the host Cavaliers should be very high against a Delaware team they defeated, 23-20, last season. RB Mike Rutland needs to have a good game for the Cavs to make it a rare two-game winning streak.

Tomorrow

Severn (0-1) at No. 10 Loyola (0-1)

Time: 11 a.m.

Outlook: After losing, 38-14, at MIAA A Conference McDonogh, the B Conference Admirals travel to Towson to face what should be a nasty A Conference Dons team coming off a 14-13 overtime loss at Landon. Numbers have always been a problem for the small private school and coach John Beckman is hoping to get through the early part of his schedule with few injuries before the start of their conference schedule Oct. 3.
