Gonna take a lot of slack for this one, but I think WX will surprise everyone and beat Timpview. I expect to see 6'3" Barton playing a lot of single coverage on 6'5" Dax. Should be an awesome match up. WX D is also better than Logans. Should be an awesome game, and I know my prediction is well against the grain.

@sportsfan you may be right and woods cross may beat timpview but if your going to look at woods cross defense you also have to look at there offense. I'm pretty sure Logan's offense is better then Wx and timpview shut it down and besides it isn't just Dax and jake on offense we also have other weapons at wide receiver and a pretty beast runner in Aspinall

I agree. Logan has a more potent offense, but it is more one-dimensional than WX. And trust me, I know Dax isn't the only threat. He is just the biggest one. It might end up being a game of roll players and who steps up. I am looking forward to it and have all the respect in the world for Timpview.

@SportsFan101 and Footballfan8

I agree with Sportsfan, this should be a really good game. WX is better than people think, they play a really controlled type defense, usually forcing many offenses to resort to the second game plan, and they are disciplined on the defensive side of the ball which I like. They have good shut down corners and safties, this is a great matchup. I also agree with football fan that TV has so many weapons that they will have spread WX out making it very difficult, however, TV is not as disciplined, but if they can control those dumb penalities they are dangerous. I like TV in this one but closer than most might think.

My Predictions:

Bountiful 21 Mtn Crest 17 - This one is a tough one to pick

Timpview 30 Woods Cross 18 - TV pulls away at the end, still closer than the scoreboard says

Orem 21 Highland 14 - I think the pace gets slowed way down in this game, I think that gives Highland the edge but I think Orem pulls it out.

East 34 Box Elder 10 - I think East shuts it down early and preps for Timpview
