The Vallivue Falcons (5-1, 3-1) of the 4A SIC travel to the Columbia Wildcats' (2-2, 2-2) den, the 2-0 Capital Eagles take on the 2-0 Timberline Wolves, and the 3-1 Nampa Bulldogs faceoff against the Ridgevue Warhawks (1-4, 0-4).
The Bishop Kelly Knights were scheduled to take on 4A SIC foe Caldwell on Friday night, but the game was canceled earlier this week.
According to KTVB's media partners at the Idaho Press, the Caldwell Cougars had to forfeit the game after 33 of the 58 students on the roster were ineligible. Athletic Director Jon Hallock said it was mostly due to academic issues.
On Sept. 28, students with failing grades were warned that they had to turn their grades around or they'd be ineligible to play. On Monday when grades were checked, many of the students on the team were still failing classes.
