The 2004 "Big
IHSFW.com "The Big Game" is
a quick rundown of the best match-ups from around the state week by
"The Big Game"
Chatham (Glenwood)6-0 @ #4 Springfield (S.H.G.) 6-0
SHG has been rolling over teams since last season.
Averaging almost 50 points a game so far this year, questions about them being the favorites to win the 5A Title are no longer taken lightly by all 5A playoff contenders. The buzz around another trip to state is high in Springfield, but the focus is definitely on the Titans this Friday as the Cyclones will need to remain undefeated to help their bid for a title.
Glenwood doesn't have the same punishing defense they had last year, giving up a few more points this season, but a higher scoring offense which has been averaging 39 points a game will be competing with SHG & their speedy QB Eric Petermen.
#9 Libertyville 6-0 @ Gurnee (Warren)
Warren's Blue Devils may be the most over looked team in the state. The Devils have flown under the radar, as most polls & rankings forgot about them after they lost to #3Park Ridge
(Maine South)6-0, by a score of 38-36 in week 2. Meanwhile they've taken outMundelein
(H.S.) &Antioch , both of whom were undefeated till they faced Warren. Warren will make it the third week in a row they've faced an undefeated team.
Libertyville won't be taking the Devils lightly though. The 2003 7A Runner-ups will be looking to take the North Suburban (Lake) Conference Title again this year & the Devils are the main threat left standing in their way.

#26 Harvey (Thornton) 5-0 3-0, hostsTinley
Park (Andrew) 5-0 3-0.
Thornton just finished knocking off then #23Bolingbrook17-14. Bolingbrook was a much better team than their 2-3 record shows. They could be the best 2-3 team in the state. Meanwhile the Thunderbolts will be looking to finish as the sole SICA (Gray) Champions this season, but that will only happen if they're able to take out Thornton on their own turf.
