GRIDIRON GURUS: Week 5

in Predictions

PUTTING IT ON THE LINE: Picking Texas high school playoff games, NCAA college football games in Texas, as well as the Cowboys & the Texans

While Class 6A and 5A enter into the postseason, the 2020 Texas high school football playoffs narrow down to State Semifinal games in Class 4A, 3A and 2A this week as the Class 1A finalists have already been determined. So THE SPORTS BUZZ Gridiron Gurus added a handful of Class 6A and 5A playoff games into the mix, along with an assortment of NCAA college football games in Texas as well as the Dallas Cowboys and the Houston Texans.

THE SPORTS BUZZ Gridiron Gurus pick’ems panel welcomes newcomer Don Nicholas, Field Representative for U.S. Congressman Roger Williams (TX-25) this season, while Meridian Yellowjacket football head coach Wade Morton, The Sports Buzz  photographer David Harding and The Sports Buzz’ Brett Voss return from last year.

For the record, our panel proved downright Nostradamus-like last week, collectively posting an amazing 121-27 record, getting 81.8 percent of the picks correct. Wade scorched the grid with a near-perfect week to catch David for the overall lead. His soothsaying made Brett’s strong runner-up effort almost look pedestrian, especially when Wade ended up being the only one picking Carthage over China Spring, Falls City over Christival, and Rice over Marshall.

Join us every Thursday throughout the rest of the 2020 football season as THE SPORTS BUZZ Gridiron Gurus pick their winners for a select group of the week’s high school playoff games, your favorite college teams from the NCAA Div. I, Div. II and Div. III, as well as the state’s two NFL teams, the Dallas Cowboys and Houston Texans.

Be sure to make your picks as well!
