Nothing too exciting this week on the college front but there are some good high school games with this being the final week for some teams to try to get to the playoffs. Other teams are just trying to end a 2-year losing streak. Here goes:
North Marion 12 - Preston 10. Yeah, I know...pretty gutsy predicting a North Marion victory but I think it's finally time to end that long, long losing streak.
RCB 31 - Wheeling Park 14. RCB is just way too good for WP.
Elkins 24 - Buck-Up 17. Ummm...Elkins wins.
Alabama 31 - LSU 28. My upset special this week. Nick Saban finds a way to beat the ol' Tigers. Luckily for Nick, this game is in Alabama and that will make the difference.
Oregon 38 - Arizona State 24. Oregon continues to move up in the polls. Do you really think the BCS Championship wants the Ducks and those ugly uniforms? ASU is knocked out of the national title hunt this weekend.
Steelers 24 - Ravens 16. Ray Ray won't be happy in Pittsburgh on Sunday when the Steelers beat up on him. The Steelers are just too good for Baltimore.
Lastly, the game of the week...
East Fairmont 38 - Fairmont Senior 27. East Fairmont's offense is clicking and West's defense has been porous towards the end of the season. East Fairmont has too many weapons for the Polar Bears to contain, I think. I've seen Fairmont Senior play 3 times this year and they have the potential to break some big plays but they have lacked consistency. Should be a good, high scoring game but East will knock West out of the playoffs and gain homefield advantage this year.
