Football Picks: I was 8-2 last week including the reverse call win in Auburn, which helped. The overall record is now 38-12 (76%). I'll miss Les Miles, but Ed Orgeron should provide some entertainment down on the Bayou until season's end.

Ellwood Christian at Notasulga: Ellwood of Selma began playing 8-man football in 2009. They moved to the AISA in 2011. The next year, they joined the AHSAA. There is one constant; they've never had a winning season. NHS 55, ECS 6

Reeltown at Ranburne: The Bulldogs beat the Rebels last year and have an 8-2 record in the series. Reeltown is reeling after an extra week to sit on the 41-0 beatdown by Lanett, their worst loss in 20 years (Clay County 47-0, 1996). Reel 36, Ran 14

Elmore County at Munford: The Panthers will be all but eliminated from playoff contention with a loss on Friday (that would be five straight years). They beat the Lions last year. Revenge won't have anything to do with this year's game. All that aside, Munford is just too strong. MHS 42, ECHS 14

Robert E. Lee vs. Jeff Davis: If we went back to the 1860s, who would win - Lee or Davis? You Civil War buffs get back with me on that one. I'm sticking with football.

This was a great rivalry in the 1980s and 90s. This year, both teams are pretty decent, maybe not to the standard of Spence McCracken or Charles Lee though. The series is knotted at 25-25-1. Lee 41, JD 37

Tallassee at Dadeville: This will be the 65th meeting in the series. Wetumpka is the only team that Tallassee has played more (67 times). Tallassee has a 46-18 record against Dadeville.

There are three region games left on THS' slate; Dadeville, Holtville and Leeds. The Holtville game is basically a guarantee. The other two are not.

If the Tigers don't get at least a split, they might be sitting at home for the post-season. Tallassee has been a playoff team eight straight years. If they can shake the turnover bug, they should take care of business. THS 34, DHS 29

Stanford at Washington: These two are probably the best clubs in the Pac-12. Why are they playing it on a Friday night? Chris Petersen has the team to take the torch from the Tree. UW 27, SU 23

Wisconsin at Michigan: The Badgers might be for real. I'm just not sure I'm ready to go all in. I'm not sold on LSU or Notre Dame. Michigan is a legitimate foe. If the Cheez-Its leave the Big House undefeated, I'll concede.  UM 30, UW 27

Louisville at Clemson: Here's another one of those, "Are they the real deal or not?" games. The question is pertinent for both squads. There won't be another game all season with more prolific quarterbacks. I like Clemson's defense more than that FSU team's "D" that got drubbed. Also, factor in the Death Valley effect. CU 40, UL 37

Louisiana Monroe at Auburn: Tiger fans are still basking in the glow of last week's win over LSU. Gus Malzahn can breathe easy this week. A review on the final play shouldn't be necessary this Saturday. AU 48, ULM 13

Kentucky at Alabama: There is a huge gap between the bottom of the league and the top. The Cats are pretty close to the bottom. We all know where Alabama is. UA 42, UK 14
