Carencro (2-0) at Acadiana (1-1)

Last year: Carencro won 24-17

The buzz: A huge matchup between two former District 3-5A foes. The Wreckin’ Rams are sure to be motivated this week after being shut out on the road in Ponchatoula last week. But points might not be easy to come by against Carencro, which has only given up six points through two weeks.

Plaquemine (1-1) at St. Thomas More (2-0)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Hope the scoreboard operator at St. Thomas More is ready to work Friday night. These two high-powered offenses have combined to score 172 points in their first two games. It should be an exciting and fast-paced game between these powerhouses.

Patterson (0-2) at Catholic-New Iberia (1-1)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Two powerhouses are off to a bit of a slow start. Patterson will play on the road for the third consecutive week after losing games to Central Lafourche and Hahnville. The Panthers dropped their season opener against a stout Vermilion Catholic team but bounced back with a 24-6 win against Erath. Catholic’s offense is still looking to regain its form from a year ago when it made it to the state championship game.

Crowley (2-0) at Cecilia (2-0)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Two of the best running backs in the Acadiana area square off in one of the better matchups of the week. Crowley’s Ty’Von Griffin has amassed 263 yards and seven scores in the Gents’ two wins, and Cecilia’s Raymond Calais has been even more explosive, with 376 yards and five scores rushing.

Vermilion Catholic (1-1) at Erath (1-1)

Last year: Vermilion Catholic won 35-30

The buzz: Vermilion Catholic dropped a tough one to Kaplan last week and is looking to get back above .500. They’ll lean on quarterback Hunter Frith to get there, but they’ll have to stop Erath’s ground game. After beating up on Delcambre in its opener, Erath was handled on the road 24-6 against Catholic-New Iberia last week.

Northside (0-2) at Comeaux (1-1)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: After getting shut out in their season opener, Comeaux earned its first win under new coach Doug Dotson by beating Westgate 24-14 last week. It’ll go for No. 2 in a homecoming game against a Northside team that hasn’t been able to get its offense going in the post-Ethan Rose era, though its two games have come against some outstanding defenses in Acadiana and Cecilia.

Jeanerette (0-2) at Franklin (0-2)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Someone will emerge from this game with their first win of the season and end a long losing streak in the process. Will it be Jeanerette, which has lost seven straight dating to last year after getting shut out 32-0 and 55-0 in the first two weeks? Or Franklin, which has lost 14 straight since 2013, including blowout road losses to Loreauville (52-6) and Walker (64-14) this season?

Covenant Christian (0-2) at Gueydan (1-1)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: After rushing for five touchdowns in its season-opening win against Ascension Christian, Gueydan was bogged down in last week’s tough 14-12 loss to Grand Lake. Covenant Christian has been no stranger to close losses this season. Both of its losses are by a combined total of four points.

Church Point (2-0) at Kaplan (2-0)

Last year: Church Point won 30-0

The buzz: Two of the better teams in the area go head-to-head for bragging rights, as Kaplan looks for some revenge on its home turf after being shut out by Church Point a year ago. Kaplan staked its claim as a contender by knocking off Vermilion Catholic on the road last week, and its vaunted rushing offense has picked up nearly 600 yards and 10 scores through two weeks.

Woodlawn (0-2) at Lafayette (2-0)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: The Mighty Lions welcome a Baton Rouge area team to town for its homecoming game, and they’re looking to start 3-0 for the second straight year after not doing so in any of the previous 10 seasons. Lafayette has scored 39 and 48 in its two wins, and Woodlawn has given up 24 and 44 in losses to Hahnville and Destrehan.

Oberlin (0-2) at Mamou (0-2)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Oberlin and Mamou are looking to get their offenses in gear in this one, as both have been limited to six total points in their first two games.

North Vermilion (1-1) at Northwest (2-0)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Northwest’s offense has been rolling in high gear, averaging 51 points in wins against Opelousas and St. Edmund, and senior running back Chris Lee has been a big part of that, accounting for six touchdowns and 431 rushing yards in the first two games. North Vermilion is coming off a tough 28-6 road loss to Episcopal-Baton Rouge).

Teurlings Catholic (2-0) at Notre Dame (2-0)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: This is strength versus strength for two of the best programs in the area. Notre Dame’s defense has been absurdly good through two games, and it showed it off in last week’s shutout of Breaux Bridge. But Teurlings Catholic isn’t Breaux Bridge, and the firepower brought by quarterback Cole Kelley and running back Noah Harris is one of the most potent punches in the state. Bring your popcorn for this one.

Madison (2-0) at Opelousas (0-2)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: If the Tigers want to turn things around after their 0-2 start, they need to get better on defense after allowing 48 points in back-to-back weeks. Madison (of Tallulah) will present a challenge in that department after averaging better than 35 points per game in its two wins.

Breaux Bridge (1-1) at Rayne (0-2)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Rayne is looking to break into the winner’s column in its homecoming game against Breaux Bridge after opening up the season with two tough losses. Breaux Bridge will be difficult to move the ball against, but the Tigers have only scored seven points in two weeks.

Opelousas Catholic (1-1) at St. Edmund (0-2)

Last year: Opelousas Catholic won 46-32

The buzz: The Vikings are looking to bounce back from a disappointing performance against Central Catholic last week, when they couldn’t overcome their self-inflicted wounds. St. Edmund is a mystery. The Blue Jays allowed 68 points in a Week 1 loss to Northwest before shutting out Iota 8-0 last week.

Lafayette Christian (0-2) at Ville Platte (1-1)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Knights coach Derek Landry is returning to his old high school haunts against Ville Platte, where he played in the 1990s. His own personal homecoming is on his mind for sure, but he’s also looking to turn his team around after it’s been outscored 75-31 in two weeks.

New Iberia at Westgate

Last year: New Iberia won 15-6

The buzz: Westgate is playing its third straight opponent from last year’s 3-5A district, this one in the form of cross-town rival New Iberia. The annual meeting is dubbed the Bayou Berry Bowl, and New Iberia is looking for its fourth consecutive win against Westgate.

Dunham (2-0) at Westminster (2-0)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: Dunham is one of three Baton Rouge area teams making the trip to Acadiana this week, and this is the only one of those matchups featuring a pair of undefeated teams. Westminster’s wins haven’t come easy, and Dunham will present a difficult matchup after dropping 40 points on Ascension Catholic last week.

Highland Baptist (2-0) at West St. Mary (0-2)

Last year: Did not play

The buzz: West St. Mary has yet to score this season, which is never good, but it’s especially concerning when considering the opponent this weekend. Highland Baptist has scored 50 in each of its first two games, and its led by running back Brontre Griffin, who has rushed for at least 250 yards in each of Highland Baptist’s games.
