Loser of three of its past four games, UA will be looking to continue dominating a series in which it hasn't been seriously challenged.
Loser of three of its past four games, UA will be looking to continue dominating a series in which it hasn't been seriously challenged. The Bears are 3-0 all-time against Central Crossing, winning 35-0 in 2008, 84-6 in 2010 and 76-0 last year.
Kyle Kaparos, who has started the past two games and played the second half against Gahanna, has proven capable of running the offense, of which Gus Ackley (75 carries for 633 yards and 9 touchdowns) remains the backbone.
The main concern for the Bears' defense has to be Tory Clark, a Football Bowl Subdivision recruit who is equally adept as a running, passing and special teams threat.
The Comets are 3-20 in league games since 2007, with all three wins coming against Westland.
•LAST WEEK - Ackley's touchdown runs of 15, 55 and 34 yards were the offensive highlights for UA, which trailed 24-21 at halftime when the game was suspended because of lightning Sept. 21 and resumed the next morning. Ackley ran for 192 yards on 21 carries and Kaparos was 11-for-19 passing for 111 yards and an interception.
Clark scored the Comets' only touchdown against Davidson on a 5-yard run in the fourth quarter. The game was suspended Sept. 21 and completed the next day.
