SWC (5-0 overall, 4-0 league) has its toughest game of the season coming up on the road at 6 p.m. Friday versus Joseph (4-0, 4-0), but it seems like the team is getting better and better as the season has gone on.

The hard-hitting Redside efense has given up 37 points in five games, for 6.1 a clip.
