Nonleague Friday

  • Kennedy-Fremont (0-1) at Mt. Eden (1-0), 3:45 p.m.

  • St. Patrick-St. Vincent (0-1) vs. Albany (0-1) at Albany MS, 6:30 p.m.

  • Concord (0-1) at Amador Valley (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • Granada (0-1) at Antioch (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • Monte Vista (0-1) at Berkeley (1-0), 7 p.m.

    A closer look: The tough portion of the nonleague schedule begins for the Yellowjackets when they host a Monte Vista team that beat them 21-0 last season. Besides Monte Vista, Berkeley will play two other 2012 North Coast Section Division I playoff teams in Pittsburg and James Logan before the start of the West Alameda County Conference play. Friday's game will provide the Yellowjackets a better gauge as to how they stack up with their Division I peers. Berkeley easily defeated Washington-San Francisco 40-8 in its opener. Monte Vista will be looking to shore up its defense after a 57-56 overtime loss to Castro Valley in its opener.

  • Terra Nova-Pacifica (0-0) at Bishop O'Dowd (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • Livermore Valley Prep (0-1) vs. California School for the Deaf (0-1) at Granada HS, 7 p.m.

  • Acalanes (1-0) at Castro Valley (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • Rodriguez-Fairfield (0-0) at Deer Valley (0-0), 7 p.m.

  • College Park (0-0-1) at Dougherty Valley (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • Woodside (0-0) at Dublin (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Foothill (1-0) at Freedom (0-1), 7 p.m.

    A closer look: Freedom will need to find a way to take some of the load off standout Joe Mixon, who had a brilliant first half in a 35-28 loss to Amador Valley last week but had to leave the game with leg cramps. Mixon, a five-star (out of five) recruit, started at running back and defensive back, scoring four touchdowns and rushing for 147 yards in the first half alone. Foothill got its season started by using a balanced attack to easily get past Novato 51-6.

  • Mission-San Francisco (0-0) at Hercules (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Casa Grande-Petaluma (1-0) at Heritage (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • San Leandro (1-0) at James Logan (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Emery (1-0) at John Swett (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Hayward (0-1) at Livermore (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Campolindo (1-0) at Menlo-Atherton (0-0), 7 p.m.

  • St. Mary's (0-0) at Miramonte (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Ferndale (1-0) at McClymonds (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • Las Lomas (1-0) vs. Mission San Jose (0-0) at Tak Fudenna Stadium, 7 p.m.

  • Piedmont (0-1) at Moreau Catholic (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • San Lorenzo (1-0) at Mt. Diablo (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Arroyo (0-1) at Newark Memorial (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • San Marin (1-0) at Northgate (1-0), 7 p.m.

  • Oakland Tech (0-1) at Pinole Valley (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • California (1-0) at Pittsburg (0-1), 7 p.m.

    A closer look: Two of the top Division I squads in the NCS get together for an early-season showdown. Pittsburg will be looking to right the ship in its home opener after a surprising loss to Analy-Sebastapol last week. Standout running back Harris Ross didn't see action until the second half for undisclosed reasons, and by then the Pirates had too big of a hole to overcome. California cruised in its opener against Washington-Fremont, winning 46-20 behind big offensive games from quarterback Cameron Owen and running back Blake Bierwith. When Pittsburg and Cal faced off last year in San Ramon, the Grizzlies emerged as 40-34 winners.

  • Stellar Prep (0-1) at Oakland (0-0), 7 p.m.

  • American (1-0) vs. Tennyson (0-0) at Sunset Field, 7 p.m.

  • Castlemont (0-0) vs. Valley Christian-Dublin (0-1) at Chabot College, 7 p.m.

  • Irvington (0-0) at Ygnacio Valley (0-1), 7 p.m.

  • Liberty (1-0) at West-Tracy (0-1), 7:15 p.m.

  • Encinal (0-0) at Aptos (0-0), 7:30 p.m.

  • Berean Christian (1-0) at Le Grand (1-0), 7:30 p.m.

  • Alhambra (0-0-1) at Rancho Cotate-Rohnert Park (0-0), 7:30 p.m.

  • Skyline (0-0) at Seaside (0-0), 7:30 p.m.

    Saturday

  • De La Salle (1-0) at Serra-San Mateo (0-0), 1 p.m.

    A closer look: The Spartans renew their early-season rivalry with the Central Coast Section power and its head coach, Patrick Walsh, a De La Salle graduate. Walsh's squads have given his alma mater some trouble in the past, posting close losses in 2009 (14-7) and 2008 (29-28) before the Spartans cruised 45-7 in their most recent meeting in 2010. This will be the season opener for Serra. De La Salle began the year with a 34-14 win over Clayton Valley Charter in new coach Justin Alumbaugh's debut. Serra might be without three of its top players, however. Tight end/defensive end Matt Dickerson (a Notre Dame commit) and strong safety Tyson Terrero are both dealing with injuries and are questionable against the Spartans while Hamilton Anoa'I, recovering from an ACL tear, is definitely out.

  • Vallejo vs. Fremont at Curt Flood Field, 1:30 p.m.

  • Middletown (0-0) at Salesian (1-0), 1:30 p.m.

  • Kennedy-Richmond (0-0) at Drake-San Anselmo (1-0), 2 p.m.

  • Richmond (0-1) at Piner-Santa Rosa (1-0), 2 p.m.

  • Alameda (1-0) at Redwood-Larkspur (0-1), 2 p.m.

  • Bellarmine College Prep (0-0) vs. El Cerrito (1-0) at De Anza HS, 7 p.m.

    A closer look: El Cerrito didn't shy away from top-notch competition in constructing its nonleague schedule, and the Bells might be the best team the Gauchos face until the playoffs. Both squads are coming off stellar 2012 seasons and feature some of the Bay Area's top recruits. El Cerrito has a trio of Pac-12 bound playmakers -- linebacker D.J. Calhoun (USC), cornerback Adarius Pickett (UCLA) and wide receiver Jalen Harvey (Cal), though Harvey will serve a one-game suspension after being ejected from the Gauchos' season-opening win against Sutter. Bellarmine boasts Vanderbilt-bound quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels.
