    • The game of the night. On paper the Lions should win and be 8-1 heading into week 11 but football is played on the field.
    • The X factor is the Ranchos defense and the Ranchos running game. This game comes down to the Liberty Ranchos Hawks and if the Hawks watch the Selma vs Kerman game film and does the same thing on defense then this game is over. Selma brought pressure and kept super junior QB Sean Chambers in the pocket and Kerman had no plan B. If the Ranchos can bring it by running the ball then the Ranchos will roll. The Hawks are much more physical than the Lions.

    • The X factor is the Eagles have lost 2 straight and will win big this week but the Eagles have to play better on both sides of the ball if they get a rematch vs Mendota or Dos Palos. It’s not a good match up for the Eagles when they play Mendota or Dos Palos.
