Big 12 Update: No Surprises This Week

Bloomington rode their winning streak to the far southern reaches of Big 12 country to easily defeat the lowly Mattoon Green Wave. Ever since Rantucky left the Big 12, the Green Wave has been looking for other conferences where they might not get pooped on every week. If it wasn't for the baseball coach's desire for some strong competition, they would already be in some Little Egyptian conference playing against people with more similar dialects. The Raiders, once again, scored 40 points in the first half, and the starting defense gave up a grand total of zero. No surprise that Danville also cruised to a blowout against Eisenhower. The two games of interest ended with an NCHS victory over in-town rival, West, and MacArthur defeating Champaign Central 16-0. Next week's showcase game will be against the two undefeateds. Decatur MacArthur travels to the home of the Royal Donut. Lucky for the Vikings, they play their first quality opponent since the first week of the season at home. MacArthur has played tough every week so far, and I expect it to be a close game throughout. BHS hosts a 2-3 team in Champaign Centennial. The drama continues for football fans everywhere next Friday night.
