Three things we know
Quin McCollum’s squad is helmed by two quarterbacks – Deion Trezevant and D’Marco Zeigler – with high completion percentages and talented skill players such as running back/wide receiver Tiski Gray. The Raiders face C.A. Johnson next, and have a chance to roll into their biggest test – a Sept. 12 meeting with Westwood – with a 3-0 mark.
The Falcons’ offense, directed by coordinator Scott Jones and led by senior quarterback Robert Barrow averages 42 points per game. It will take more than two games to complete the turnaround from the Falcons’ 1-10 record last season, but Ben Lippen is clearly off to a strong start.

Three top performers
Three to watch
Swansea kicker Yunuem Pena, who cleared a 39-yard field goal on Friday, could give the Tigers the edge they need.
