Published: October 12, 2016 1:00 AM

A lot will be on the line Oct. 14 when the Aurora High varsity gridders travel to the Akron suburb of  Copley Township.
The winner will gain massive computer points heading into the postseason, and the Suburban League American Conference title likely will go to the winner.
AHS is currently second in Division II Region 5 computer points and Copley is third.
Last season, both teams finished 5-1 in the conference to share the championship in the first year of the reconfigured Suburban League.
Last year, Aurora beat Copley 28-21 at home. This year so far, both teams are 6-1 overall and 4-0 in the conference.
Copley has beaten Twinsburg 35-28, Akron Firestone 51-0, Barberton 27-26, Revere 48-27, Tallmadge 35-7 and Highland 33-16 and lost to Uniontown Lake 38-35.
The Indians’ big threat is tailback Weston Bridges, who carried the ball 185 times last year for 1,620 yards and 29 touchdowns to lead his team to a 9-2 record.
Copley’s quarterback is Austin Brenner, and two talented receivers are Alex Zelch and Will Bridges. Center Tommy Connolly and tackle Zafeer Muhammad anchor the offensive line.
