Five things to watch this weekend:

Mission Viejo (Calif.) vs. Long Beach Poly (Calif.)
This game matches two teams ranked in the ESPNHS Fab 50. The Diablos, ranked No. 34, have never lost to Poly in what has been a very one-sided rivalry up to this point. Mission Viejo embarrassed the Jackrabbits, No. 37 overall, on their home field a year ago in a 37-7 smack down that wasn't even that close. Poly's lone score came in the final 40 seconds against the Diablos' reserves.

Both teams are littered with high-level FBS prospects and there could be as many as 15 players on the field, including underclassmen, who will play college ball. It's been well documented that the Jackrabbits have five players committed to Arizona State and all five are rated among the top 50 prospects in the state. Wide receivers Richard Smith and Josiah Blandin, corner Randall Goforth and linebackers Matt Rowe and Salamo Fiso are joined by Texas A&M commit Alonzo Williams to give the Jackrabbits one of the most talented teams in the region.
