No. 10 Milpitas (3-0) at Salinas (1-1), 7:30 p.m.: This could be one of the few challenges for Milpitas until the playoffs. Salinas opened its season with an eye-opening 42-6 rout of perennial section power Oak Grove but then lost 28-17 last week at Terra Nova as Nathan Gordonthrew for 382 yards and three touchdowns for the winning side.

Menlo-Atherton, the reigning CCS Open Division I champion, bounced back last week with a win on the road over Palma after narrow losses at home against Bellarmine College Prep and Archbishop Mitty. Los Gatos has lost two in a row, 43-28 at Corona del Mar and 21-20 at home against San Benito, since opening the season with a victory over Pioneer. Los Gatos’ Robert Nelson has passed for 763 yards and eight…
