About the Thunderbirds: Quarterback Casey Rumsey and receiver Travis Van Leeuwen have formed a deadly combo so far this season. Both Levi Te'o and Byson McKenzie have contributed at running back. Their defense has been as fierce as usual, with Craig Bills playing well in the secondary. Xavier Sua'Filo anchors the line.

About the Knights: Quarterback Tannon Pederson has directed a balanced offense that's running a West-Coast type of scheme. Kade Andrus has been a key contributor at running back. The defense has been strong, with linebackers Zane Mendenhall and Greg Gowdy and defensive back Quaide Chappius leading the way.
