On a blustery, cold night in Rossville last weekend, Humboldt football made school history after winning the sectional playoff game.

On Friday, more chances at history hang in the balance for the undefeated Cubs as they head back to a part of the state known for football success when they face the 9-2 Riley County Falcons.

The Falcons are members of the Mid-East League, a league that also holds perennial powerhouses Rossville and Silver Lake. The Bulldogs had won three state titles since 2014 and were raring to try for a fourth before the Cubs defense pitched a scoreless fourth quarter on their way to a win last week.
