Both teams are coming off of victories this past week. Airport (3-3) defeated a depleted Grosse Ile team 27-7 while Huron (2-4) upended Jefferson 48-34. Airport won last year's game in Carleton 14-13 and have won 28 in a row in the annual series.
The Airport offense has been clicking recently, teams must account for both the Jet's passing and running attacks. Defensively, the Jets are giving up a meager 16 ppg in league play and have been opportunistic forcing some turnovers.
Huron's offense has averaged 43 ppg over the last two contest but the defense has been giving up points as well. Huron QB Eli Scott should return from injury after missing the Jefferson game last week although sophomore QB Matt Hartwick stepped in and did a fine job.
Airport needs this win to keep their playoff hopes alive while Huron hopes to still finish with a winning record and stop the losing streak to Airport that dates back to 1984. Pick: Huron 23 Airport 21
