Last week: 10-0
Adams Central over Southern Wells – Flying Jets aren't great, but Raiders are worse.
Heritage over Bluffton – Patriots have only lost to great teams this year, and Tigers aren't that.
South Adams over Garrett – I just don't trust the Railroaders at all this season.
Leo over Woodlan – Lions roll over every team in the ACAC and Warriors will be no different.
Homestead over Carroll – In a close game, I'm going with the home team.
East Noble over Columbia City – Knights have only failed to show up 1 1/2 times this year. They'll find a way in this one.
Norwell over DeKalb – As last week demonstrated, you can only hope to contain the Knights, not shut them down.
Churubusco over Culver Academy – I don't feel real confident in making this pick.
Cathedral over Bishop Dwenger – A week ago, I would've probably picked differently. Certainly not now.
Snider over Elkhart Central – The Panthers deliver fifth straight L to Blue Blazers.
