Pigskin Picks

Darned if UU didn’t burn us again.

After getting all four of our high school picks right last Friday night, UU lost to previously-winless West Liberty U. on Saturday.

Oh well, a 4-1 mark last week improves our overall record to 25-3 … with 2 of those misses coming on Blue Knight games.

Tonight’s Games

Kenton Ridge (3-2) at Urbana (1-4) – The Hillclimbers actually played a decent game against unbeaten Indian Lake last week, although UHS ended up losing, 43-7.

Kenton Ridge is much more beatable than Indian Lake, so Urbana has a chance to prevail in tonight’s matchup.

We’re picking KR to win, although it could be very close.

WL-S (2-3) at Mechanicsburg (5-0) – The Indians haven’t been challenged yet this season – and it probably won’t happen tonight against rival WL-S.

With the Tigers likely out of the playoff race after last week’s loss to Greeneview, we’re going with the Indians to prevail by their usual wide margin.

Graham (0-5) at Indian Lake (5-0) – Graham has given up a ton of points this season, and that will likely be the scenario tonight.

We’re picking the Lakers to win.

Triad (0-5) at Cedarville (0-5) – Something has to give at Cedarville tonight in this matchup of mirror-image teams.

We’re going with Cedarville to prevail in what could be a very close one.

Saturday’s Game

Urbana U. (1-3) at Fairmont State (4-0) – We’re confident that we’re not going to miss this UU pick.

We’re going with unbeaten Fairmont State to prevail.
