Airport (1-0) is coming off of a thrilling 25-22 come-from-behind victory while Jefferson (0-1) is coming off a disappointing 29-0 loss to Ida. The Jets won last seasons match up 28-14 and have won seven straight in this rivalry.
Airport is looking to improve to 2-0 on the season and will try to do so with a punishing ground game led by Dylan Meiring. The Jets rushed for over 300 yards in week 1. The defense stepped it up last week in the 2nd half after spotting Adrian a 22-14 halftime lead.
Jefferson sputtered on both sides of the ball in their week 1 loss to Ida. The Bears will need to stay away from mistakes and penalities if they are to give the Jets a game. The offense will once again be led by QB Justin Kull and RB Sean Kirchner.
Both teams suprise me last week with their outcomes. This is a solid rivalry that will be hard fought even though Airport has dominated the win column the last seven years. Prediction: Airport 28 Jefferson 14
