Will's upset pick: The winless Ravens have been outscored
3-to-1 and been shut out twice, but I'm thinking there's
enough youthful South Valley fight to score the mini-shocker.
Rio Grande 28, Los Lunas 19

Sick's upset pick: I haven't had much luck with upsets or
picking my alma mater this season. Still, Belen's been
erratic and I'd call this game a coin flip. Del Norte 22,
Belen 20


Yode's upset pick: Memo to Rio coach Randy Gutierrez,
one of my all-time favorite coaches: Let me try and help
your cause by saying that I don't think your boys can pull
it off. (Remember me in your postgame speech, will ya,
Randolph?) Rio Grande 19, Los Lunas 17
Sam's upset pick: Highland finally lives up to its preseason 
hype and upsets 5-1 Manzano. Highland 24, Manzano 16
