BIG EIGHT SHOWDOWN

UNBEATENS NORTHWOOD, ORANGE TO CLASH IN HILLSBOROUGH

There was little to no doubt that the area’s top high school football conference this season would be the Big Eight 3-A.

With returning state 3-AA champion Southern, state 3-AA semifinalist Orange and 2013 playoff teams Cardinal Gibbons, Northwood and Chapel Hill all in the fold, things couldn’t have looked brighter for the second-year conference.

Turns out, through four games, the Big Eight might have been undervalued. And tonight, the Big Eight jumps into conference play.

The top four teams in the league — Southern, Orange, Northwood and Chapel Hill — are undefeated (4-0) and ranked no lower statewide than 34th in the 3-A ranks by MaxPreps.com, the online partner of the N.C. High School Athletic Association.

One of those four is assured of suffering its first loss tonight as Orange, which has outscored its four opponents by a combined 144-40, hosts Northwood at 7.

Three of Orange's wins have come at the expense of 4-A programs from the embattled PAC-6.

Northwood has outscored its four victims 172-29 and is ranked 26th (3-A), Orange 13th.
