Both teams are coming off of week one victories. Riverview dismantled Crestwood by a score of 49-0 while Milan's 13-6 victory over Ypsilanti took two days to complete. Milan won last year's matchup 38-13.
Riverview piled up a bunch of yardage on the ground last week behind the skills of seniors Marcus Samuels and Josh Smith. The defense appears to be improved as the Bucs shutout Crestwood.
Milan was able to survive against Ypsi last week. The Big Reds were able to shrug off some injuries. The offense will center around senior QB Robert Kanitz and freshman RB Trace Lindeman. The defense was solid while holding the speedy Grizzlies to just 6 points.
This game could tell us a lot about the Huron League this season. Is Riverview for real and/or is Milan going to really stand and defend their title. In close matchups you always go with coaching and homefield. Milan's coach Jesse Hoskins is one of the best young coaches in the state but Riverview's Jeff Stergals has been doing this thing a long time. Pick: Riverview 21 Milan 17
