St. Joseph-Ogden will play just four contests on their home field this season. The Spartans, who hope to rebound after a 4-5 season last October, open the season on the road against St. Thomas More in Champaign. Last year, holding to the Sabers to just one score, SJO put up 54 points in the first half of their Illini Prairie Conference start.

Heading into the final game of the season at Monticello, St. Joseph-Ogden needed the victory for a spot in the 2017 playoff field. The Spartans came up just 3 points short in an emotional 27-24 thriller that ended a long running playoff streak for the storied program. This year, the Sages won't have home field advantage under the bright lights at St. Joseph-Ogden High School.
