The high school football playoffs kick off today and both the Nevada Union Miners and Bear River Bruins will be battling through their respective divisions in search of a Sac-Joaquin Section championship banner.

Led by longtime co-head coaches Terry Logue and Scott Savoie, the Bruins are the No. 7 seed in the Section’s Division 6 bracket and will host No. 10 Highlands at J. David Ramsey Stadium at 7 p.m. today in their opener.

The Miners, led by second-year head coach Brad Sparks, are back in the playoffs for the first time since 2012. They are the No. 9 seed in Division 4 and will make the nearly 100-mile trip to Fairfield to face No. 8 seed Vanden at 7 p.m. today.
