Riverview (2-1) is coming off of a 27-10 victory over Airport while Jefferson (0-3) fell at Milan by a score of 47-12. Jefferson won last season's game by a score of 51-41. The Bears have dominated this series over the last decade going 7-3 in that time span.
Riverview got back on the winning track last week and was powered by their running game which racked up nearly 400 yards on the ground. Defensively the Pirates were better and that trend should continue this week..
Jefferson is still trying to get their first win under new coach Bruce Pickens. The Bears have a new diversified offense this season but it hasn't produced significant results yet. The defense continues to struggle and has given up 122 ponits in the first three games.
On paper this looks like Riverview in a runaway. I'm not so sure, Jefferson gives Riverview fits. This game will be closer than many expect. Pick: Riverview 35 Jefferson 21
