No. 6 North Gwinnett Bulldogs (1-1) at South Forsyth War Eagles (1-1)

South Forsyth High, 7:30 p.m.

Last season: Bulldogs defeated War Eagles 29-6

Coaches: Wendell Early (SF); Bob Sphire (NG)

Players to watch: QB Brian Adams, RB Brett Charron, WR David Knorr (SF); QB Michael Tamburo, RB Tyler Jarry (NG)

Outlook: The Bulldogs graduated 10 defensive starters from last year's state runner-up team, but held Brookwood to just a field goal last week. With both teams bringing in highly-talented quarterbacks, defensive intensity could be the difference here. Two weeks ago, North Gwinnett opened up with Byrnes (S.C.), ranked No. 1 in the nation by USA Today, and stayed with them for a half before succumbing 36-21.
