    Week Five Game of the Week Preview

       To no one's surprise, the BCS Game of the Week will be the Locust Fork Hornets vs. the Redskins of Oneonta. The way the season is unfolding, this game has a lot more riding on it than most people realize. Locust Fork is (4-0), (2-0) in 4A Region 6 with key wins over North Jackson and Westminster Christian giving them the top spot in the region. However, Oneonta is also (2-0) in the region with wins over D.A.R and Good Hope. Before I go any further, let's take out the speculation that this is going to be a blow out for the Hornets. True, Locust Fork hasn't been held under 30 points all season and has ran for over 370 yards in three of their four games this season. Also, the Hornets have rushed for over 1,606 total yards in only four games. That's an average of 401.5 rushing yards per game. But what people are failing to realize is that Oneonta has one loss. That loss is to a 6A Pinson Valley team that is (2-2) on the year with both of those losses coming by six points or less. Throw that game out as well as the Guntersville jamboree game. Look at what Oneonta has done to region opponents. They handled D.A.R well with a thirteen point victory, but completely dominated Good Hope last week, (56-8). Having said that, I look for this game to be closer than most are predicting. The winner of this match will take the lead of the region and will most likely lock it up in my opinion. Love it or hate it, this is a rivalry game, mainly now because of social media, but it's still a rivalry. Locust Fork hasn't beat Oneonta since 2001. Actually, the Hornets have only beat Oneonta four times since 1980. However, for anyone to single out Locust Fork is immature seeing how Oneonta is (198-56) against Blount County Schools.
