— The Rock County Gladiators and Janesville Nighthawks each have home Great Midwest Football League games today.

The Gladiators look to increase their winning streak to five games when they host the defending Central Division champion Beloit Titans at 5 p.m. at Milton High School.


Rock County (4-2) has played the toughest schedule among the five Central Division teams. Last week, the Gladiators hung on for a 20-13 victory at the Kane County (Ill.) Chaos.


The Titans (3-2-1) handed the Gladiators one of their losses in the opening week of the season, 30-27. The Gladiators led, 21-20, going into the final quarter before the Titans pulled out the victory.


The Nighthawks continue to look for their first win in the GMFL. Janesville (0-6) hosts the Chicago Colts (1-4) at


6 p.m. at Monterey Park. Admission is free, and Pit Stop BBQ will supply the concession stand.


Fans are encouraged to bring lawn chairs to the game.


The Colts edged Janesville, 18-14, with two fourth-quarter touchdowns last month.
