Unlike recent football games between District 300 rivals Jacobs and Dundee-Crown that have lacked intrigue, Friday's meeting at the D-C Bowl bursts with compelling storylines. Jacobs enters the game with a 4-4 record and 37 playoff points. The Golden Eagles are guaranteed 2 more points and will likely finish with 41 or 42, which should be enough to secure one of the remaining 92 berths in the 256-team playoff field if they win. The playoff-point threshold last season was 40, the highest total in a decade. It was 39 in 2010. So Jacobs' mission objective is clear: win and get into the postseason.
