Records, rankings: Johns Creek is 0-6 overall, 0-5 in Region 6-AAAAAA and unranked; North is 0-6, 0-5 and unranked.

Series history: Tied 1-1.

Last meeting: North won 38-21 in 2013.

What to know: Here are two teams starving for a win. Johns Creek is on an 18-game losing streak dating back to Nov. 9, 2012, the longest in school history. North is 0-6 for the first time since 2007.

Here are two teams seemingly plagued by the same maladies. Their offenses focus on the run but struggle to move the chains - Enoch Webb leads Johns Creek with 230 yards on 69 carries, while North rushed for 83 yards on 42 carries in a 35-3 loss to West Forsyth last week. When they do pass, they’re off-target - Johns Creek quarterbacks have combined to throw just one touchdown against 11 interceptions while North quarterbacks went 1 for 11 for nine yards and an interception against West. Johns Creek allows 31.7 points a game. North allows 38.7.

So here are two teams ready for something positive to happen in their 2014 season. Consider this: Two years ago, Johns Creek won eight games and made the state playoffs. A year ago, North ended a two-year playoff drought. Now, they’re just ready for a win.
