The Friday Frenzy is here! Join sports director Gordon Voit, Mark Pearson and Orlando Toatley for the best high school football coverage in the state as they fan out across Central Illinois for as much footage as possible! Tune in at 10:10 p.m. every Friday for every highlight and score!

[For a complete schedule of Week 3 games, visit the list below]

Here are three of the top games this week:

Central A&M (2-0) @ Tuscola (2-0)

7 p.m. at Tuscola HS in Tuscola

Tuscola is itching to reclaim CIC supremacy after getting beat out by St. Teresa last season, while Central A&M is looking to prove that it's back up to 2001 levels -- when it was last in the state championship game.

Both teams feature playmaking quarterbacks in Tuscola's Logan Tabeling (Wright State baseball commit) and basketball star Connor Heaton of Central A&M.

Tuscola picked up one of the top wins in the WAND viewing area last week with a win on the road at Illini Prairie favorite Arcola and breezed past Villa Grove-Heritage in Week 1. Central A&M glided past Westville and Nokomis to get to 2-0.

Springfield High (2-0) @ Glenwood (2-0)

7 p.m. at Glenwood HS in Chatham

Springfield High is out to prove that it's in the top tier of the Central State Eight, a tier that is usually reserved for Glenwood, SHG and Rochester. Can the Senators make an enormous statement by taking down Class 6A state title contender Glenwood on the road?

Glenwood is fresh off of a convincing 34-10 win over SHG in Week 2, while Springfield High has picked up a pair of quality wins against MacArthur and Southeast.

U-High (0-2) @ MacArthur (1-1)

7 p.m. at MacArthur HS in Decatur

A convincing win here would mean a great deal to each of these teams. The tiers are starting to settle in the Central State Eight, and both MacArthur and U-High are out to prove that they belong in the middle or top bracket.

U-High is 0-2 after a grueling start to the schedule that featured SHG and Rochester. MacArthur edged Jacksonville by six last week but is looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Springfield High in Week 1.
