Last Week's Record: 8-4 Season Record: 63-21
Walled Lake Northern at Lakeland
Northern quarterback Collin O'Donnell is playing at an unbelievable level as of late, racking up over 1,500 total yards (rushing and passing) and 21 touchdowns (10 rush, 11 pass). With those types of numbers paired with an always improving defense, Northern may be in store for its first division title in school history.
Northern 35, Lakeland 31
Waterford Kettering at Waterford Mott
Waterford Mott might have the most underrated QB-WR tandem in Oakland county with Dakota Kupp and Justice Bolling who continue to show that they are capable of making the big plays, and with running back Alex Moorer, Mott should be looking at back-to-back wins over rival Kettering.
Mott 31, Kettering 21
Walled Lake Western at Walled Lake Central
Western still has its eyes set on winning the KLAA North title, and with a win over Central and a Lakeland win over Northern, the Warriors will have at least a share of the title with Lakeland. Junior quarterback Kyle Bambard and a ton of playmakers on offense should put Western at 4-1 in the KLAA this season.
Western 42, Central 31
Birmingham Seaholm at Bloomfield Hills Lahser
The Maples proved me wrong last week while showing that their defense is the real deal. Slowing down Lahser is no easy task with quarterback Spencer McCourt and running back Nate Emery, but the Seaholm defense should once again show that the Maples are serious contenders.
Seaholm 21, Lahser 14
Berkley at Hazel Park
Yes, Hazel Park was slowed a bit against Country Day last week, but that's going to happen to quite a few teams when the face the 'Jackets. But Hazel Parks offense is still one of the best that you'll find and they'll bounce back in a big way on Friday night.
Hazel Park 49, Berkley 38
Oak Park at Farmington Hills Harrison
Harrison has slipped up a bit over the course of the past few weeks, but the Hawks remain as one of the more dangerous teams that you're going to see. Oak Park remains the team to beat in the OAA White, but it should be cautious that this is a trap game.
Oak Park 21, Harrison 17
Southfield at Rochester Adams
There's no slowing down the Blue Jays right now after a blowout win over a very good Oxford team, and unfortunately for Adams, it just seems like what has been a long season will only get longer on Friday night.
Southfield 42, Adams 31
Novi Detroit Catholic Central at Birmingham Brother Rice
Catholic Central is always improving this season, but they will be facing off with a motivated Brother Rice squad. The Warriors just have too many weapons on offense to keep up with with Walker, Powell and Lacanaria and should eek out an overtime thriller.
Brother Rice 34, Catholic Central 28 in 2OT
Orchard Lake St. Mary's at Warren De La Salle
The Eaglets are a team on a mission this year and have the most impressive wins of the season so far coming over nationally ranked Cass Tech and Brother Rice, and it just looks as if De La Salle is simply in St. Mary's way.
OLSM 42, DLS 21
Troy at Clarkston
The Wolves have been about as good as it gets on both sides of the the football. Everyone knows how good the offense has been behind Ian Eriksen and D.J. Zezula, but the defense has been just as good this year with Chris Calvano and Co. and look for them to put together another solid performance on Friday night.
Clarkston 38, Troy 24
Clawson at Warren Lincoln
Clawson just might be the most underrated team you'll find because of its 3-3 record, but now that the toughest part of the schedule is out of the way, now the Trojans and make their push towards the playoffs.
Clawson 35, Lincoln 21
Farmington at North Farmington
There's no stopping Farmington this year, but North Farmington might be able to put a bit of a scare in the Falcons, but in the end, the Farmington defense will help clinch yet another playoff spot.
