Milan (1-1) saw their 14 game league winning streak halted by Riverview 21-7 Friday/Saturday while Jefferson (0-2) fell to Airport 31-21. Milan won last year's game 47-12. Milan has won seven straight in the series.
The Big Reds sputtered last week against Riverview with turnovers and penalities. Look for the offense to keep the ball on the ground as much as possible this week. Milan's defense should be fine. They only gave up 14 points last week with 7 more coming on a pick six by the offfense.
Jefferson has shown that they like to throw the ball around this season, but the Bears will need to establish the run if they are going to win games. Defensively the Bears are giving up 30 ppg, they will need to be better than that this week.
We will be able to tell a lot about each team and where they stand after this week. Milan is still a good team in my estimation and Jefferson is trying to be one. Prediction: Milan 28 Jefferson 14
