8 p.m. — Rocky Mountain 28, Eagle 14: We have a shootout on our hands. Levi Altringer is having the game of his life and doubled Rocky's lead with a 51-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Dallas Burroughs. We haven't even reached halftime, and Altringer is 18-of-19 for 273 yards with two touchdown passes. He also has a touchdown catch from Burroughs.

7:56 p.m. — Rocky Mountain 21, Eagle 14: The Mustangs bounced right back with a 72-yard scoring drive in 1 minutes, 13 seconds.

7:38 p.m. — Rocky Mountain 14, Eagle 0: The Grizzlies pounced on a fumbled kickoff return by Eagle and took the ball 29 yards in nine plays to double their score. They finished it off with a 6-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Dallas Burroughs to quarterback Levi Altringer. Both players now have a receiving touchdown and a passing touchdown. The play looked like it came straight out of Boise State's playbook. Burroughs got the ball on an end around and found Altringer wide open in the end zone. 7:42 remaining in the second quarter.

7:30 p.m. — SCORE UPDATE: Capital 21, Vallivue 0 (late third quarter); Highland 14, Centennial 6 (second quarter)

7:25 p.m. — Rocky Mountain 7, Eagle 0: Quarterback Levi Altringer is off to a phenomenal start, completing 10-of-10 passes for 152 yards and one touchdown. After being stopped on Eagle's 2 on its first drive, it looked like Rocky was going to experience more disappointment on its second trip to the red zone, but Altringer connected with wide receiver Dallas Burroughs on third-and-goal from the 19. Burroughs has four receptions for 55 yards and Chase Place has four catches for 60 yards. 11:53 remaining in the second quarter.

7:25 p.m. — End of first quarter: Rocky Mountain 0, Eagle 0

7:13 p.m. — Tanner Mangum did start at quarterback and went 2-for-4 on his first series for 23 yards, but Eagle was forced to punt.

7:11 p.m. — Rocky Mountain started with the ball at the 20 off the opening kickoff and marched 78 yards before running into an Eagle wall on fourth-and-goal.

6:50 p.m. — The defending champs have a big test on their hands if they hope to get back to the state semifinals. Eagle, which beat Capital in last year's state championship game, lost to Rocky Mountain 48-21 earlier this year, but quarterback Tanner Mangum should be back from an broken collar bone that kept him out of nearly eight games. He broke the bone against Rocky Mountain in Week 2.

Rocky Mountain, meanwhile, is still smarting after losing in last year's state quarterfinals against Eagle. The Grizzlies have been impressive in recent games and have balanced offense triggered by running back Jordan Deck, quarterback Levi Altringer and wide receiver Dallas Burroughs.

If Mangum is playing, Eagle is just as dangerous, because he has a reliable buddy in the backfield. Running back Dillon Lukehart is among the best at his position in the state and will likely get a lot of carries tonight.
