THE MATCHUP The Polar Bears have won five straight games in the series, which is tied 15-15. ... After giving up just 34 points in the first three games, the Blue Streaks surrendered 502 passing yards and 582 total yards against the Leopards. "Louisville had a ton of unbelievable throws and catches, including guys that weren't open," Jackson coach Tim Budd said after watching film. ... RB Cameron Martin has 61 carries for 387 yards and seven TDs. Lake has out-rushed opponents 768-325 this season. ... Lake QB Paul Troyer has completed 32 of 55 passes for 518 yards, five TDs and one interception. His main target is senior WR Tye Hunt, who has 17 catches for 339 yards and two TDs. They connected six times for 143 yards and a TD against the Leopards. "Tye Hunt played a really good game for us at receiver," Lake coach DeGeorge said. "He made some big catches and kept us in the game for awhile. And I thought Paul Troyer battled. We didn't protect him and he got sacked five times, but he hung in there and made some deep throws to Tye." ... Noah Collins (25 tackles, two sacks) and Tyson Blosser (21 tackles, two sacks) lead the Blue Streak defense. ... Jackson QB Trey Wright threw for 242 yards against Perry but had an end zone interception and no TD passes. "He did a really good job hanging in the pocket and delivering the ball when they knew we had to throw it," Budd said. "He probably missed two balls where he short-armed it and was late on one, but we threw it 30-some times and when that's all you're picking out of it, that's a pretty good night." ... For the season, Wright is 50 of 83 for 629 yards, five TDs and three interceptions. His main target is WR Jake Ryan, who has 27 catches for 419 yards and three TDs. ... RB Ethan Adkins has carried 72 times for 280 yards and four TDs, including two last week.
