The Liberty High football team picked up where Bishop Gorman left off last week.
Gorman went into Texas and beat Cedar Hill by 30 points to open the season. Six days later, Liberty defeated the new No. 1, Westlake (Austin), 21-14.
Junior quarterback Kenyon Oblad threw for three touchdown passes in the victory, with two of them to senior receiver Ethan Dedeaux.
Another marquee game is here in Las Vegas — Gorman is back at it, hosting Cocoa of Florida. It’s a quick turnaround for the Gaels, the back-to-back national champions who enter on a 40-game winning streak.
Other Southern Nevada teams are also playing out-of-state opponents, including Arbor View and Foothill hosting Utah schools. Arbor View plays Orem; Foothill takes on Desert Hill.
Desert Oasis will meet John Muir of California and Saturday Faith Lutheran is in Hawaii to challenge Kaimuki.
