Both of Glen Ellyn's football teams are in great shape record-wise going into this Friday's games.
Glenbard West vs. Oak Park-River Forest
Two football powerhouses will do battle Friday, when the Glenbard West Hilltoppers (4-1) take on the Huskies of Oak Park-River Forest (5-0) in Glen Ellyn.
Both teams are 3-0 in WSC Silver. Kick off is at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, in Glen Ellyn.
The Chicago Tribune is highlighting this match as a "Game to Watch," with the Hilltoppers ranked at No. 5 and Oak Park at No. 15. The Hilltoppers have lost only one conference game since 2008 and are favored to win, according to the Tribune.

Here's the rest of Glenbard West's schedule; only three games are left in the regular season:
- Oct. 12 (H) vs. Hillside (Proviso West)—1:30 p.m.
- Oct. 18 (A) vs. Addison (A. Trail)—7:30 p.m.
- Oct. 26 (H) vs. Elmhurst (York)—1 p.m.
Glenbard South vs. Riverside Brookfield
All signs lead to a win for the Raiders this Friday in Riverside, considering Glenbard South is undefeated and Riverside-Brookfield has yet to win a game this season.
The Bulldogs were close last weekend in their 20-14 loss against Ridgewood High School, but the rest of their matchups have been lopsided. The Raiders, on the other hand, have been showing no mercy to their opponents, especially at last weekend's Homecoming game when they shut out Elmwood Park 48-0.
Game time is 7:30 p.m. Friday at 160 Ridgwood Road in Riverside.
Here's the rest of the Raiders' schedule:
- Oct. 11 (H) vs. Bensenville (Fenton)—7:15 p.m.
- Oct. 18 (A) vs. Norridge (Ridgewood)—7:15 p.m.
- Oct. 26 (A) vs. Chicago Heights (Bloom Twp.)—12 p.m.
