Both teams are coming off of solid victories last week. Milan continued their worst to first travels by improving to 5-0 with a convincing 35-20 victory over SMCC while Flat Rock (2-3) put together a win streak for the first time since the 2009 season after beating Riverview 38-3. Flat Rock won last season's contest 21-14 which was their first over Milan since 1967.
Milan appears to be in the drivers seat for this year's league championship. The Big Reds continued with a solid offensive output last week behins the legs of Arthur Dukes and the arm of Justin Aceves. Milan also boast one of the best defenses in the league while yielding just over 13 ppg.
The Rams seem to be playing their best football in years led by first year Head Coach and 2001 Flat Rock graduate Tom Oestrike. The Rams are led by a physical defense that yields just 14 ppg and rugged running back Mike Blosser.
This won't be an easy road for the league leading Big Reds. Flat Rock will be fired up for their homecoming and boast a solid run defense. I'll be there hanging with some old friends. Pick: Milan 21 Flat Rock 14
