Brittany Hannah

Adairsville (0-1)

at Armuchee (0-1)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Armuchee leads, 23-12

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Armuchee won, 55-0

OUTLOOK: Adairsville is likely to be a little extra hungry after a loss last week’s loss to Cass, and the Tigers will capitalize on their size advantage tonight against the Indians while rolling to the non-region victory.

RN-T PICK: Adairsville, 28-7

Cedartown (1-0)

at Pepperell (0-1)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Series tied, 12-12-1

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Cedartown won, 35-28

OUTLOOK: As is the case with most any rivalry game, tonight’s contest in Lindale will feature plenty of intensity. We also have a hunch that it will feature a tight finish. But that’s only if Pepperell can contain Nick Chubb, which is something that doesn’t happen often.

RN-T PICK: Cedartown, 28-20

Mount Pisgah (1-0)

at Model (1-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Mt. Pisgah leads, 1-0

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Mt. Pisgah won, 24-13

OUTLOOK: Model showed some good signs in last week’s win over Christian Heritage, but the level of competition rises this week for the Devils. You can expect this one to go to the wire — with the Model fans leaving happy.

RN-T PICK: Model, 27-25

Rockmart (0-1)

at Coosa (1-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Rockmart leads, 31-11-1

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Coosa won, 28-13

OUTLOOK: The Eagles turned some heads with their 33-6 win over Gordon Central last week, and our crystal ball indicates they will turn a few more tonight. With Jacquez Brown, Isaac Bradley and Tristen Bryant, the Eagles have enough speed to win tonight’s track meet.

RN-T PICK: Coosa, 30-26

Rome High (0-1)

at Hiram (0-1)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Rome leads, 5-0

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Rome won, 21-0

OUTLOOK: The Wolves absorbed a tough loss last week, falling at home to South Paulding, 42-35, and they can not afford another defeat inside the region this early in the season. You can bet Rome head coach Franco Perkins got that message across to his team this week — loud and clear.

RN-T PICK: Rome, 28-10

Sonoraville (0-1)

at Gilmer (1-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Gilmer leads, 1-0

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Gilmer won, 31-0

OUTLOOK: Gilmer opened the season with a shutout victory last week (22-0 over Fannin County) while Sonoraville was on the wrong end of a shutout (losing to Pickens, 47-0). Sound like a potentially bad omen? It does to us.

RN-T PICK: Gilmer, 24-6

Dalton (0-1)

at Calhoun (1-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Dalton leads, 34-7-1

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Calhoun won, 55-41

OUTLOOK: The Yellow Jackets will be playing their home opener tonight, which means .... wait a second. Does it really matter? Home or road, the Jackets just keep on winning, and tonight we have no doubt they will stretch their regular-season winning streak to an almost unbelievable 48 straight games.

RN-T PICK: Calhoun, 29-20

Gordon Central (0-1)

at SE Whitfield (1-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Gordon Central leads, 14-3

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Gordon Central leads, 46-7

OUTLOOK: With a host of young players on the roster, the Warriors might need a few games to find their rhythm. And SE Whitfield’s defense isn’t likely to allow that to happen tonight.

RN-T PICK: SE Whitfield, 28-9

Heard County (0-1)

at Chattooga (0-1)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Heard County leads, 1-0

LAST MEETING: Sept. 7, 2012 — Heard County won, 47-12

OUTLOOK: Before getting into 7-AA play, Chattooga is battling through a highly-challenging non-region schedule. They opened the season with a 48-12 loss at East Hall last week, and it doesn’t get much easier tonight.

RN-T PICK: Heard County, 31-16

LaFayette (0-0)

at Trion (1-0)

TIME: 7:30 p.m.

SERIES HISTORY: Trion leads 35-23

LAST MEETING: Trion won, 31-6

OUTLOOK: If there were those who wondered if Trion would be able to replicate last year’s success, the Bulldogs delivered the proof with last week’s 43-6 win over Armuchee. Tonight, we think the Bulldogs will bulldoze past a rebuilding LaFayette team, now under the direction of former Gordon Central head coach Chad Fisher.

RN-T PICK: Trion, 35-8

Unity Christian (1-1)

at Horizon Christian

TIME: 7:30 p.m. (Saturda)

OUTLOOK: Unity Christian quarterback Anderson Krueger is off to a hot start this season, completing 35 of 67 passes for 563 yards in the Lions’ first two games. We are expecting more of the same Saturday, as the Lions look to bounce back from last week’s 41-26 home loss to New Creation Christian.

RN-T PICK: Unity Christian, 30-25
