I am way excited for the Hurricane Dixie game. Should be a good one. Winner of this game decides region 9 champs. Hurricane hasn't lost a home game since the 2007 football season. It was a 6 - 0 playoff loss to Delta. It is hard to win in H-town. However, Dixie looks really good this year. Blake Barney can throw and run, and last week he had a Tebow like mentality that ultimately won Dixie the game against the always overrated Pine View. The last time Dixie beat Hurricane was again the 2007 season. It will be interesting to see if Dixie has the mental toughness to beat the tigers in H-town. Hurricane has a 17 game wining streak, and there home game winning streak is 28 straight games. This game for sure is the game of the week. Good luck to both teams.

Go Tigers!!!!

Jordan: 31, Alta: 21 I guarantee it! Jordan beats Alta this year ending a 6 game losing streak! BOOK it!

I commend Hurricane for their long win streak at home, but i believe Hurricane is ripe for the picking. I've seen Dixie play several times this year and have to say Dixie will not only win. but Blake Barney and co. will annihilate Hurricane. mark my words Dixie 27 to Hurricane 13!

A friendly wager irrelevant?

Wager or not Dixie will win. I honestly don't see anybody beating Dixie this year. I also believe it was you amanap who said pv would roll over Dixie. well we all know that stopping miller is the main key in stopping Pv. as for Hurricane It's all about stopping Thompson and shooting the gaps.

needless to say. it'll be a good game, but Dixie will have more to play for.

@ Irrelevant

I was at the Dixie PV game, and i have to admit i too was impressed with Dixie. However, i was also at the Hurricane Legacy NV game, and my opinion would be that Legacy was much bigger, quicker, and more athletic overall than Dixie. However, Dixie is good. Barney is awesome. It will be a good one. We will just have to wait and see what happens. Needless to say, it will be a good game.

I don't recall picking P.V. but may have. Where was it that I said that so I can check. I usually don't like to pick the team by Costco to win stuff.

P.S. Thompson didn't play for most of the West Jordan game and half of the Legacy game. Only had like 4 carries against Skyline. I hope that is the scouting report. Although, it might be good to stop the running back with 12 touchdowns through 4 games? That's just me talkin' though.
