Milan (4-1) is coming off of a 47-21 homecoming victory over Huron while Grosse Ile (2-3) fell hard at SMCC 35-7. GI won last years game 38-36, but Milan leads the all-time series 17-9.
Milan is playing very well right now. The offense has been virtually unstoppable with Demetrius Barnes and Trace Lindeman. The two have combined for nearly 1,200 yards and have scored 12 rushing TD's. The LB's have been the strength of the Big Red's defense led by senior Cortez Gray.
Grosse Ile just ran into a better team last week. The Red Devil offense is led by two juniors in RB Andrew Vollmerhausen and QB Justin Moores. The defense is led Josh Moskall and Sean Cuddy.
GI most likely needs to win out to qualify for the playoffs, but Milan is just too good right now and is capable of making a long playoff run if they stay healthy. Pick: Milan 41 Grosse Ile 21
