The Titans have secured the league's No. 1 seed and home-field advantage in the state 5-A playoffs.
As the only undefeated team in the 5-A ranks, Syracuse High (8-0 overall, 4-0 league) wants to finish out the regular season with an outright Region 1 title, which so far, has eluded the Titans during their six-year history.
A road victory today at Pleasant View's Earl Jones Field over winless Weber High (0-8, 0-4) -- mired in a state-leading 21-game winless streak dating back to the 2010 season -- clinches the Titans' first league football crown.
Syracuse, which allows a state 5-A low 7.87 points per game with three shutouts, leads the Warriors 4-1.
No team has scored more than 14 points versus the Titans this year.
Northridge (7-1, 3-1) has secured a 5-A playoff berth and plays at Davis (5-3, 2-2). The Knights won 21-14 last season to snap a three-game skid against the Darts and lead the series 11-8.
Two-time defending league champion Fremont (1-7, 1-3) is 12-6 versus the Lancers (3-5, 2-2), with the Silver Wolves eliminated from state 5-A playoff contention with a home-field loss to Layton.
A Fremont loss would put the Darts and Lancers into the 5-A playoffs.
In Region 5, Mountain Crest has clinched no less than a tie for the league title and home-field advantage in the state 4-A playoffs.
The Mustangs (6-2, 4-0) win the outright league title with a victory over Roy (5-3, 1-3). Mountain Crest leads Roy 12-1 with six consecutive wins.
The Royals have ended a 20-year streak of consecutive losing seasons. With a bye next week, and win or lose at Mountain Crest -- regardless of whether Roy makes the 4-A playoffs or not -- the Royals are assured of their first .500-or-better season since 1991.
Roy last won five games in 2007, when it went 5-6. The Royals haven't had six season victories since 1991.
Logan-Box Elder will be for second and third place, unless the Mustangs falter.
The defending state 4-A champion Grizzlies (6-2, 3-1) and Bees (6-2, 3-1) tangle for the 94th time in the state's second most-played rivalry. Box Elder dominates 61-29-3 with Logan winning two of the last three since the series resumed in 2009 after a four-year hiatus.
But the Bees have won five of the last seven games going back to 2001.
Bonneville (2-6, 0-4) has lost five straight after a 2-1 start, and must beat Sky View (3-5, 1-3) and have Roy lose to the Mustangs to force a three-way tie for fourth place and the league's final 4-A playoff berth.
The Bobcats have won three of the last four against the Lakers, including two straight, but Bonneville leads the all-time series 19-10-1.
The Lakers, in their 53rd season, are playing their 550th game.
Clearfield (2-6, 0-4) and out of the state 4-A playoff picture, beat Cyprus in 1972 and 1973 and again last year, 32-20.
Summit Academy-Layton Christian is a first-time meeting.
If the Eagles (3-5, 0-2) lose to the Bears, they are likely eliminated from the 1-A playoffs with a road game at Rich next week.
