Meridian at Boise (DLP)
Meridian could force a tie for fifth place in the standings if it wins out and Timberline loses its final two games.

Boise QB Tyler Cox and receiver Cameron Mayne rank second in the 5A SIC in total yards at their respective positions.
Capital at Centennial
Capital, Highland and Idaho Falls are the only unbeaten teams left in the 5A classification. The Eagles have the top defense in the 5A SIC, limiting opponents to an average of 17.6 points and 286 yards per game.

Caldwell at Nampa
A postseason berth is out of the question for both teams, making pride the only thing at stake. Nampa owns the fifth spot in the 4A SIC, while Caldwell is tied for last.
Mountain Home at Kuna
Kuna is assured a spot in the state playoffs for the first time since 2007.

Parma at Weiser

New Plymouth vs. Cole Valley (at Vallivue High)
Cole Valley can wrap up its first undefeated season in the 2A WIC with a victory over New Plymouth. The Pilgrims lost to Melba 42-12 last week, falling to third place in the standings.
Marsing at Melba
Melba is assured a postseason berth, but Marsing still has a sliver of hope on the final night of the regular season. A Marsing victory, combined with a McCall-Donnelly win over Nampa Christian, would give Marsing the tiebreaker and the fourth playoff spot.
McCall-Donnelly at Nampa Christian
Nampa Christian can grab the fourth and final state playoff berth with a victory against winless McCall-Donnelly.

Council at Cascade
Council is in position to earn the leagues No. 2 seed at state, but cant afford to slip up with two teams waiting in the wings with three victories each.
Horseshoe Bend at Garden Valley
Tied at 3-2 in the standings, the winner of this game assumes the No. 3 spot in league play in the regular-season finale for both teams.
