A rematch between Baldwin and Eudora highlights Tuesday's state football playoff clashes involving Journal-World area teams.
In Class 4A, Baldwin will be making its second trip of the season to Eudora. On Oct. 11, the Bulldogs handed the Cardinals their lone loss, 33-32.
Eudora (8-1) and Baldwin (6-3) feature the top two running backs in the Frontier League. Eudora's Andrew Pyle and Baldwin's Micah Mason have each gained over 1,000 yards.
Also in 4A, Ottawa (5-4) will play host to Paola (5-4). Ottawa lost three of its first four outings, but the Cyclones have won five straight since, although one of those victories was forfeited for using an ineligible player.
Tonganoxie (5-4) will travel to Atchison (6-3). The Chieftains advanced after squeezing Lansing, 21-20, on Thursday.
Also, Mill Valley (8-1), which suffered its first loss on Thursday night at Eudora, will travel to Topeka Hayden (8-1).
