Ten Weeks, Ten Games

Crank up the motor home, fork over $200 for a few gallons of gasoline and let's hit the road come August26th. We are going on a ten week, ten city, ten football game tour of Alabama. Well, not really. If that were a possibility here are a few gridiron contest you would want to add to you tour.

August 27th - Demopolis at Briarwood. What a way to start the season. A must see game if for no other reason than to watch Demarcus James carry the ball. James rushed for 293 yards in his last game in Tuscaloosa. The two have met only twice previously with Briarwood coming out ahead on both occassions.
Honorable Mention: Sweet Water at Thomasville, Deshler at Russellville, Reeltown at Dadeville, Elba at Opp, Madison Academy at North Jackson

September 3rd - Oxford at Gadsden City. These two schools are just close enough together to create a good rivalry among good teams. Look for Gadsden City to be loaded with talent and ready to prove a point this season. Gadsden City holds a 3-1 advantage in this relatively new rivalry.
Honorable Mention: Spain Park at Hoover

September 10th - Walker at Cullman. Cullman has held the upper hand recently by winning the last five meetings after Walker won the previous six. The winner of this game will have the upper hand in Region Six. Walker has a slight 31-30-2 advantage in the series but Cullman has come out on top in the last five meetings.
Honorable Mention: Foley at Daphne, Trinity at Washington County. Stanhope Elmore at Prattville

September 17th - Linden at Sweet Water. Many think one of these teams will be in Auburn come December. Brantley may have something to say about that.  Sweet Water has won the last seven contest between the two with all the games being a blowout. Do not count on that happening again this year. Linden may be ready to overcome this obstacle. Linden also holds a 32-25-3 advantage in the series.
Honorable Mention: UMS-Wright at Jackson, Hackleburg at R.A. Hubbard

September 24th - Clay County at Lineville. Clay County has won the last seven contests but the rivalry has lost none of it's luster from many years of battle between these two schools. This may be the last meeting as the two schools are scheduled to combine for the 2011 season. Overall Lineville has a 55-46-4 record in the rivalry.
Honorable Mention: Leroy at Jackson, Bob Jones at Spain Park, Hartselle at Decatur, Gadsden City at Hoover, Midfield at McAdory

October 2nd - Prattville at Opelika. Prattville has won fourteen of the twenty five meeting between the two schools and the last four but make no mistake about the intensity of this rivalry. Both teams mark this date as soon as they view a schedule each season.
Honorable Mention:

October 8th - Thomasville at UMS-Wright. These two had so much fun last season they played twice splitting the two games. Thomasville won 42-37 during the 2009 regular season only to have UMS-Wright come back in the playoffs to win 21-7. UMS-Wright holds a 16-6-1 advantage in the series.
Honorable Mention: Maplesville at Pickens County, Greenville at Demopolis, Carver at Prattville

October 15th - Vestavia Hills at Hoover. There is no need to write anything here. These two just plain out do not like each other. The Bucs lost 16 games in the last ten years. Five of those losses were to the Rebels. Hoover holds a 23-19 advantage in the series.
Honorable Mention: Lamar County at Lexington, Spanish Fort at Vigor, Fairhope at Vigor, Cordova at Hamilton

October 22nd - Handley at Leeds. This could be one of the up and coming rivalries as the two currently reside in Region 3. They have only met twice previously with each winning one game.
Honorable Mention: Davidson at Murphy, Brantley at McKenzie, Jackson at Thomasville, Opelika at Auburn

October 29th - Cherokee County at Piedmont. How often do you get to see two defending state champions square off during the regular season? This should be a battle of the titans as both teams look toward the playoffs in a couple of weeks. Cherokee County holds a 36-28-3 advantage in the series winning the last four contests.
Honorable Mention: Murphy at McGill, UMS-Wright at St. Paul's, Guntersville at Albertville, Sweet Water at Leroy.

October 30th - (Due to heavy rains this game is postponed until Saturday night.) W.S. Neal at T.R. Miller. Rivalry week brings a bunch of don't miss games but one stands out. The Battle of Murder Creek has been a monumental contest since the 1940s between two schools only separated by a few miles. Miller will carry a 47-20 record against its rival into this season.
