The 5A Southern Idaho Conference kicks off its pod schedules this week, and the race for playoff seeding starts with Grizzlies traveling to Dona Larsen Park at 7 p.m. Thursday to take on Timberline.

Defending state champ Rocky Mountain (3-1) had its 13-game winning streak snapped at home last week by Mountain View. The Grizzlies rely on their option-based attack, running for 341.3 yards per game. Carter Kuehl leads the 5A SIC with 704 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground.

Timberline (1-3) has allowed a league-high 36.3 points per game this season, and the Wolves are trying to snap a four-game losing streak to Rocky Mountain.
