Plainfield plays Decatur Central on Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Plainfield plays Decatur Central on Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Decatur Central (4-1) vs. Plainfield (3-2), at Lucas Oil Stadium, 6 p.m.: This game could decide the Mid-State Conference, or at least designate a clear frontrunner. It’s also a potential preview in Sectional 13, a four-team 5A field that also includes Tech and Zionsville. Decatur Central 28, Plainfield 27.

Greenwood (4-1) at Guerin Catholic (4-1): These teams meet for the eighth consecutive year with Guerin owning a 4-3 advantage. Greenwood is looking to bounce back from a 28-0 loss last week to Plainfield. Guerin Catholic 31, Greenwood 24.

Monrovia 37, Beech Grove 34.
