GREG'S FOOTBALL PICKS: Friday features first big conference games

East-New Albany, Jeff-Floyd highlights Week 5 schedule



• TIME: 7 p.m.

• PLACE: Paul Graves Field.

• RECORDS: Clarksville 0-4, 0-3 MSC; Salem 2-2, 2-1.

• SERIES RECORD: Clarksville leads 35-17.

• SERIES STREAK: Clarksville has won three in a row.

• LAST MEETING: Sept. 14, 2012 at Clarksville — Clarksville 28, Salem 0.

• KEY FACTS: During their three-game winning streak versus the Lions, the Generals have scored an average of 34 points per contest and prevailed in each game by an average margin of 27 points. Clarksville has only given up a combined seven points in the last two meetings. … The Generals have not started a season 0-5 since 2003. That season Clarksville lost its first six contests and finished with a 3-8 record. The Generals also began the 2002 campaign losing their first five games.

• ANALYSIS: Despite their 34-14 loss last week to Corydon Central, the Generals found some positives. Clarksville senior Marquise Parrish rushed for 148 yards and teammate Andrew Wright caught four passes for 93 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown reception. And those numbers came against a tough Panther defense that ranks 16th in the state in scoring defense. Clarksville needs to find a way to keep getting the ball to Parrish and Wright, so they can make plays and improve the Generals’ chances of winning.


• TIME: 7 p.m.

• PLACE: Eastern High School.

• RECORDS: Eastern 1-3, 1-2 MSC; Corydon 4-0, 3-0.

• SERIES RECORD: Corydon leads 6-0.

• SERIES STREAK: Corydon has won six in a row.

• LAST MEETING: Sept. 14, 2012 at Corydon — Corydon 66, Eastern 21.

• KEY FACTS: In their six victories over the Musketeers, the Panthers have averaged 50.7 points per game and allowed 9.3 points a contest. Eastern has been shut out twice by Corydon and its highest point total in its series with the Panthers happened last year. … The Panthers have surrendered 20 points or less in each of their last five MSC games.

• ANALYSIS: If the Musketeers want to at least stay within striking distance of Corydon, they must limit their turnovers and penalties and cannot give the Panthers any momentum. But that will be a challenge to do against a disciplined Corydon squad.
