This is a very close matchup between two evenly matched teams. Both Sabinal and Bruni have 5-5 records, and they are both ranked close to each other in the state and their division.
The Yellowjackets have a slightly better offense, averaging 27.7 points per game to the Badgers’ 27.6 points per game. However, the Badgers have a slightly better defense, allowing 26.3 points per game to the Yellowjackets’ 26.8 points per game.
The key to the game for the Yellowjackets will be to control the clock and keep the Badgers’ offense off the field. If they can do that, they will have a good chance of winning.
The Badgers, on the other hand, will need to force the Yellowjackets into turnovers and make big plays on special teams. If they can do that, they will have a good chance of winning.
This is a very close matchup, but I am going to give the edge to the Sabinal Yellowjackets. I think their slightly better offense will be the difference in the game.
Final Prediction: Sabinal Yellowjackets 28, Bruni Badgers 24
