No doubt, the top matchup to watch this weekend in high school cross country will take place at the Chile Pepper XC Festival in Fayetteville, Arkansas. 

The meet record holder will face one of Texas' top distance runners in a showdown of NXN qualifiers and Foot Locker Nationals finishers. 

Who will come out on top Saturday between Fayetteville's Camren Fischer and Fort Worth Christian's Carter Cheeseman on the experimental farm course at the University of Arkansas? 

That's a pretty good question. 

Fischer already nabbed a big win over Cheeseman in rainy conditions in Fort Worth, Texas, at the Southlake Carroll Invitational. This weekend, Cheeseman will arrive around Fischer's hometown to take it out on a 5K course the Arkansan knows well.

History tells us Cheeseman has gone faster overall. But Fischer's career best was on this course last year and conditions on Saturday are expected to be similar to that of the pair's last race on Sept. 8. Forecasts project early morning rain and temperatures in the high 60s. 

That could favor Fischer. 

Check out both athlete's comparisons over their careers below. 

Note: Officials at The Chile Pepper Festival are keeping a close eye on the weather. Any postponements or delays will be posted on their event site
