They've had this problem in the NFL too -- runaway games on Thursday night, like those in Alaska high-school football.

Colony High, the state's top-ranked large school, rolled over the West Eagles on their home field 46-15. The Knight are now 4-0 while West falls to 1-3.

Across town, defending state champion East (3-1) was having an easy time of it with Dimond. The T-Birds took a 12-0 second quarter lead which ballooned to 28-0 at half. East would cruise to a 41-6 win handing the homesteading Lynx (1-3) their third straight loss.
