Pigskin Picks


By Steve Stout - sstout@civitasmedia.com



There may have been only three games to pick last week, but we’re still pretty happy that we were perfect.

For the season, our prognostication record is now 50-11, which isn’t too shabby.

We still have at least one more game to pick, so let’s get to it.

Saturday’s Game

Mechanicsburg (12-0) vs. Marion Local (11-1) at Bellefontaine – Nearly two dozen times, teams from the Ohio Heritage Conference have taken on teams from the Midwest Athletic Conference.

And every time, the MAC has prevailed.

Can Mechanicsburg finally break the MAC jinx?

Our first inclination is to pick Marion Local to win, but this Mechanicsburg team is one of its best ever.

In fact, the Indians have the offensive player, defensive player and coach of the year in Division VI in the Southwest District.

If the Indians can ever break the MAC jinx, this might finally be the time to do it.

We’re going to assume that Mechanicsburg will play an error-free game – a big assumption – and go ahead and take the plunge.

We’re picking Mechanicsburg to win, although we won’t be the least bit surprised if it goes the other way.
