Mountain View (4-1, 7-1) at Palo Alto (5-0, 8-0), Friday, 7:30 p.m.

While this is only a nonleague game, there's plenty at stake for the host Vikings, who moved into the Cal-Hi Sports Top 25 state rankings this week. It's Paly's first appearance (at No. 25) since 2006, when the Vikings played in the Division II state finals. Mountain View of the SCVAL El Camino Division is coming off a 57-7 rout of Cupertino while Palo Alto defeated Homestead, 35-13, last Friday to win the SCVAL De Anza Division crown outright. Paly is averaging 31.6 ppg while allowing just 8.0 per game, while Mountain View is scoring 34.6 ppg while giving up 14.7. Paly senior QB Christoph Bono was named Cal-Hi Sports Nor Cal Offensive Player of the Week after completing 12 of 16 for 253 yards and two TDs against Homestead. He has completed 101 of 153 passes (.660 completion percentage) for 1,580 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also has kicked 35 PATs for the Vikings, who can go 9-0 for the first time since 1963 with a victory on Friday. Davante Adams, who caught five passes for 133 yards and a TD last week, now has 43 catches for 763 yards (17.7 yards per catch). Palo Alto is just two wins away from completing a 10-0 regular season. The last time that happened was 1950.
