Crimsons cruised to 48-13 win over Eagles last year
Kickoff: 7 p.m.

Manual will play at Ballard next week in the first round of the Class 6-A playoffs.

Berger passed for 176 yards and six touchdowns, including three to Sugar Ray Wyche. Berger has passed for 1,334 yards and 19 TDs with 10 interceptions this year.
