The Braves will be looking to win their third straight contest against the Indians who started their season 1-0 with a 27-24 victory over Ogden, Utah.
Star Valley racked up 495 yards on the ground against the 3A Nevada state runner-up squad a week ago. Junior Wyatt Moore gashed the Spartans for 191 yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries.
