BRONC FOOTBALL - The Sheridan Broncs play at Natrona County tonight. As far as standings are concerned, the game means nothing to the Broncs. Sheridan is the #1 seed heading into the play-offs. The game does mean everything to NC as they need a win, and hope for some help from other teams to get into the post-season tournament.
