Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The NIAA opens the high school football season next week but Nevada's best team has a huge game Saturday night. Bishop Gorman, ranked #7 by, travels to Arizona and will face #30 Chaparral in an NFL stadium.

It's the Gaels' third straight appearance in the Sollenberger Classic. Bishop Gorman lost both exhibtiions the previous two years.

Chaparral has an explosive offense with highly-touted weapons. Senior quarterback Connor Brewer has committed to Texas, while wide receiver Davonte Neal is fielding offers from nearly every top program.

Bishop Gorman finished 13-2 last year, with both losses coming against non-Nevada teams. The Gaels did capture the NIAA state championship for the second straight season.
