SBLive’s Top 25 schedule in Ohio: Fans have to wait a day for Week 3’s biggest game

Mentor at St. Edward on Saturday is possibly the biggest game of the regular season in Ohio high school football, but the Friday schedule is also packed with intriguing matchups.

La Salle faces the biggest challenge, as the Cincinnati power hosts Florida’s IMG Academy, the nationally ranked juggernaut that embarrassed Bishop Sycamore on Sunday night in Canton on national TV.

It looked like Cincinnati Elder (photo above by Nate Swanson) would be idle after St. Mary’s (Missouri) canceled because of COVID, but the Panthers found an opponent from Virginia to host tonight.
