This week’s matchup:

Douglas at Reed, 7 p.m.

Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Douglas will play a playoff game at Reed tonight.

The Tigers have seen the Raiders more than any other school (by a whopping margin) in recent years. Tonight will be the 12th time Douglas has played the Raiders in the past seven years. The Tigers have one win in the series during that span. Douglas has seen Reed in the playoffs in six of the last seven seasons.

What to look for:

Don’t look at records and don’t look at the recent past in this one. Reed left little doubt that it is the cream of the crop in the North this season. However, what has made Reed so devastatingly good in recent years has been an overwhelming defense. The defense is solid again this year, but can give up some points in bunches.

Six opponents this season have totaled 26 points or more. One of those six was Douglas, which put up its highest point total of the season (28) in a 48-28 loss to the Raiders in Minden earlier this year.

Granted, Reed will have learned from that game. But Douglas’ offense has been steadily progressing over the past three contests and just might be able to string together the points it needs.

On the other side of the ball, the Douglas defense did an admirable job containing the Raider run offense, but Reed’s big receivers gave the Tigers fits all night. Look for some tweaks to the coverage scheme. It’s an uphill battle, but playoff football, whether it be the atmosphere or the declining weather, tends to be rough on passing offenses in Northern Nevada. This one could get interesting.

Last 5 Matchups:

2011: Reed 47, Douglas 30 (r); Playoffs: Reed 60, Douglas 36 (r)

2012: Reed 54, Douglas 35 (r); Playoffs: Reed 47, Douglas 14 (r)*

2013: Reed 28, Douglas 28 (d)

Reed leads series 25-10

What happened in Week 10:

Nov. 1

Reno 35, Manogue 7

Carson 19, Douglas 13, OT

Damonte Ranch 56, McQueen 12

Reed 63, Spanish Springs 28

North Valleys 47, Hug 0

What’s happening around the league this week:

Northern Division I Playoffs

Nov. 8

Spanish Springs at Carson, 7 p.m.; Douglas at Reed, 7 p.m.; Reno at Galena, 7 p.m.; Damonte Ranch at McQueen, 7 p.m.

My picks (I never pick the Douglas game and I am 22-14 on the year):

McQueen over Damonte, Carson over Spanish Springs and Galena over Reno.

I was 2-2 yet again last week. I have no comments this week because all three playoff matchups are essentially a coin flip.

What we learned in Week 10: Reed bounced back from a surprising defeat at the hands of Reno to thump its rival Spanish Springs. McQueen and Damonte Ranch get to meet up again, just at a different venue, which makes you wonder how much each team really showed the other last week. Entering the playoffs, Reed is the favorite to win the region, but as we’ve said all season, it’s anyone’s ballgame.
