SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — In week four, some kept their undefeated streaks while others failed to find their first win. Conference games start next week.
This week’s schedule posed many questions: how does a back follow a 6-touchdown performance? Is number one for real? What does a high school crowd of 15,000 look like?
We got answers and followed along on social media.
