The Las Vegas High football team has defeated Rancho 19 straight seasons in the "Bone Game" rivalry.

Tonight, when the teams met at 7 at Rancho, the Wildcats are again expected to win in convincing fashion.

Yet, despite the lopsided scores in recent years, the evening still remains as one of best in Southern Nevada during the prep season.

This is the 59th time the schools — two of the original in the area — have played each other, meaning the outcome is only part of the fun. The stands are always packed, especially with alumni from each school, and there’s plenty of pageantry outside the game with competitions between the student councils and bands.

And, Rancho might put up a fight this season.

The Rams (2-2) snapped a 30-game losing streak earlier this month and appear to heading the right direction. Las Vegas has young players at most key positions, but have scored at least five touchdowns in each of its three games this season. Rancho, on the other hand, failed to score last week against Virgin Valley.

This isn’t the lone game of interest tonight.

Basic (3-0) looks to continue its undefeated season at Arbor View in a battle of top-5 ranked teams. And at Coronado, the Cougars host Liberty in a game where there’s no love lost between the neighboring schools. It’s nicknamed the "Rose Bowl" because the schools are located on opposite part of St. Rose Parkway in Henderson.

In the Division I-A, Faith Lutheran and Mojave, each undefeated in the Sunset League, square off in a game where the winner will be in the driver’s seat to win the league championship.
