PRESS PICKS: Big week for panel as ‘greatest week of college football’ arrives




Staff Report
(November 8, 2017)

The standings all but stayed the same last week but the lead for Stephen Gunter did increase by a game.

Gunter and Graham Dunn continue to be 1-2 in the standings while Michael Butler stayed third but fell off the pace a bit.

This week has "epic" written all over it with the AHSAA playoffs opening and one of the best schedules in college football history with seven games featuring Top 25 matchups. Also, the top 3 teams - Georgia, Alabama and Notre Dame - all go on the road to face top 25 opponents.

There are also three games featuring the Top 10 teams. The highlight in this neck of the woods is Auburn and Georgia. Maybe surprisingly, Auburn is a big favorite among the panel.

Alabama is a near-unanimous pick to beat Mississippi State while most expect Notre Dame to beat Miami, Fla.

In the preps, Lanier is expected to advance as is Tallassee and Montgomery Academy.
