Overview: It starts on defense for the Cougars, who return seven starters from the league’s stingiest defense in 2009. Brouker, McDonald and Meadows earned all-league honors on that side of the ball a year ago. This season, CK allows just 16.5 points per game. Even with the departure of standout wide receiver Christian Wesley, who now is a freshman at Central Washington University, the Cougars still have the league’s third-most prolific offense at 26.3 points per game. The Wolves have a commanding lead in the series, but most of that was based on their dominance of Central in the early years of both programs. South has a 22-21 edge since 1949 along with a tie in ’68. The Wolves must win to avoid their first losing season since 2004.
