All games begin at 7 p.m.
New Iberia (2-7) at Acadiana (5-4)
LAST YEAR: Acadiana won 28-6
THE BUZZ: It’s been a tough year for New Iberia, which snapped a five-game losing streak by knocking off Comeaux on the road last week. But they can finish the season on a high note by knocking off the defending state champs. The Rams are hoping to avoid finishing the season with a .500 record.
Livonia (9-0) at Church Point (9-0)
LAST YEAR: Livonia won 40-9
THE BUZZ: This is the best game in the area this week, as two teams head into the regular season finale trying to keep the dream of a perfect season alive. Church Point got lost big at Livonia last season and would like nothing better than to put a bow on its fantastic regular season by returning the favor.
Patterson (6-3) at Franklin (0-9)
LAST YEAR: Patterson won 45-6
THE BUZZ: Franklin was competitive early in the season, but it has been shut out in three straight games. The Hornets are looking for their first win of the year, but it might be too much to ask against a Patterson squad that has reeled off six straight wins.
Lafayette Christian (4-5) at Highland Baptist (6-4)
LAST YEAR: LCA won 41-13
THE BUZZ: Since going on a four-game losing streak midseason, Lafayette Christian has won two of its last three games. The Bears, meanwhile, have lost two of their past three, including a 34-32 heartbreaker to Ascension Episcopal last week.
Jeanerette (2-8) at Loreauville (6-4)
LAST YEAR: Loreauville won 48-0
THE BUZZ: Loreauville is coming off a big loss to Catholic-New Iberia last week, but don’t be fooled by the 69-12 score — Loreauville scored better than 50 points in the two weeks before losing to the Panthers. Jeanerette has only scored 32 points in its last four games — all losses — and 26 of them came last week.
Opelousas (1-8) at Rayne (7-2)
LAST YEAR: Rayne won 49-21.
THE BUZZ: The Wolves got back on track last week in a 41-21 win over Beau Chene, and they can close out a nice regular season by beating what will likely be an overmatched Opelousas squad. The Tigers have lost eight straight since a 23-20 win against West St. Mary, and they’ve only scored 27 points in five district contests.
Ascension Episcopal (7-2) at Vermilion Catholic (8-1)
LAST YEAR: Vermilion Catholic won 42-7
THE BUZZ: Powered by star running back Ja’Ceiry Linzer, the Blue Gators have won five of their last six games and look like a candidate to make a playoff run. The defending state champion Eagles have won eight straight since dropping their season opener to a talented Catholic-NI squad.
