Get ready for Armageddon when it comes to parking and traffic in La Cañada on Friday night.

That's because La Cañada and St. Francis are both hosting home football games on Friday night. Usually they try to avoid playing at home on the same night since the schools are right next to each other.

La Cañada is hosting Crescenta Valley in a huge rivalry game. St. Francis is hosting La Serna.

A look at some of the top prep football games this week:

Alemany vs. Santa Margarita at Laguna Hills on Thursday: Alemany put up a good fight with JSerra last week before losing, but giving up touchdowns on two punt returns didn't help. Quarterback Tripp Mitchell is making progress. The challenge for the Warriors is stopping the run. JSerra had little trouble running the ball, and Santa Margarita has one of the best offensive lines in the Trinity League.

Going into the third week of the prep football season, Trinity League teams are a combined 11-1.

There will be some good challenges this week. On Thursday, Santa Margarita (2-0) faces Alemany at Laguna Hills.
