FINAL SCORE: Mishawaka 28-14 over SB Adams
Penn at St. Joseph *
Penn shut out visting Washington, 58-0 while St. Joseph doubled up catholic school rival Marian, 42-21 at Marian.
Penn has given up only one touchdown defensively in the 6 games played so far, so the Penn defense has been key for the Kingsmen. Can St. Joseph score against Penn, who has blanked the last three NIC foes? Penn is ranked 2nd in the Class 6A AP state poll while St. Joseph is the only NIC school ranked in the AP poll in Class 4A at 11th.

One of these two winless squads will win their first game at School Field. Washington was blanked by Penn, 58-0 while Clay lost to Elkhart Memorial, 35-13 in a non-conference battle at Clay Field. Clay's struggling offense needs to find some rhythm, while Washington's offense has been inconsistent as well. This is Washington's final home game of the season as they will celebrate senior night at School Field.

Marian is ranked 10th in the 3A AP state poll, but 7th in the IFCA poll in 3A.
