The skinny: Bellefonte has yet to give up fewer than 40 points this season, and it won’t get any easier on Friday when the Red Raiders (0-4) host Tyrone, a team coming off a 57-21 win over Philipsburg-Osceola and is averaging 42.5 points per game this year.

The senior quarterback-running back tandem of Erik Wagner and James Oliver has accounted for 15 touchdowns for the Golden Eagles (3-1).

Wagner is 32 for 40 in the air for 519 yards and five touchdowns. Oliver has 475 yards rushing and 10 scores on just 56 carries.

Bellefonte, still trying to find its footing under first-year coach Shanon Manning, has only produced three rushing touchdowns this season.

The Red Raiders have scored 27 points in four games.
