Cincinnati Elder 38, No. 3 Highlands 24: The third-ranked team in the state saw its 43-game home winning streak, which dated to 2006, come to an end against visiting Elder.

West Jessamine 55, Woodford Co. 28: The Colts (3-7) were led by junior running back Devin Taylor, who went for 339 yards and six TDs on 31 carries against the visiting Yellowjackets (3-6). Taylor's performance put him over 2,000 yards total rushing on the season.

No. 21 Franklin Co. 63, Montgomery Co. 21: The Flyers (10-0) staged a 42-0 run following an Indians (6-3) TD at the 10:18 mark of the first quarter and only gave up two more TDs the rest of the night.

Morgan Co. 22, Magoffin Co. 16: The Cougars (8-1) fought back from a 16-6 halftime deficit to get the win on the road in large part due to junior running back Kody Thornsberry, who carried 32 times for 177 yards and all three Morgan Co. TDs against the Hornets (4-5).
