Extra points: This is only the seventh time in the history of the WB6 the championship will be decided in a head-to-head matchup in the final week of conference play. It is the first time Quincy has been involved in a winner-take-all matchup, while Moline has appeared in five of the previous six but winning only once. The Maroons are currently riding a nine-game conference winning streak, which includes a 35-32 victory over the Blue Devils last season when both teams were 3-0 in league play. Exactly like last season, these are the two highest-scoring offenses in the WB6. Quincy is averaging 52.7 points per game and needs just 13 points to break the single-second school record. Moline is averaging 43.2 points behind a three-pronged attacked in the backfield that has produced 2,084 yards rushing. Senior running back Harrison Bey-Buie has 727 yards on the ground and senior running back Aboubacar Barry has 618 yards, quarterback Zidain Sterling has 778 yards passing and nine TDs. The Blue Devils will counter with the WB6's leading rusher in Jirehl Brock, who has 1,442 yards, and junior wingback Adonte Crider, who has 709 yards.
