Butte High will have a first-round bye in the Class AA playoffs, and the Bulldogs can thank Helena High for it.
The Bengals knocked off Helena Capital 21-7 Friday night at Vigilante Stadium.
That means Butte High will be the No. 2 seed in the playoffs, which begin next Friday. Helena High will be the No. 3 seed.
Butte High will host a second-round game Nov. 5 at Naranche Stadium.
