Football: Three interesting matchups headline radio lineup

By Bo Wilson Sports Editor

As we head into Week 12, only a hand full of region seedings are yet to be determined. Buford, Dawson County, Jefferson and Rabun County all clinched region championships last week. 

We've got three interesting matchups on the Jacobs Media airwaves this week. 



Eastside at Jefferson -- This game is bigger for Eastside than it is for Jefferson. The Dragons want to remain undefeated in Region 8-5A play but have already won the region title. As for Eastside, the only way they can finish third in the region is to beat Jefferson and hope Clarke Central loses to Winder-Barrow. Clarke Central holds the head-to-head tiebreaker over Eastside. If Eastside and Clarke Central both lose, then there's a three-way tie for the third and fourth spots in the region. What do we think is going to happen? Jefferson wins. You can listen to the game on WDUN AM 550 (Click to listen live)

North Hall at East Forsyth -- All this game has is bragging rights until next season. If the two teams had won last week, they would be playing for a playoff spot. Since they didn't, it's just another game on the schedule. This game is a toss-up. East Forsyth has blown leads in its last two games, and North Hall has struggled to get over the hump down the stretch. With this game at Half-Mile Stadium, the Broncos get the slight edge. You can hear the game on FM 102.9 WDUN (Click to listen live)

Jackson County at Gainesville  -- Gainesville has already clinched its first region title since 2013, so this game doesn't really have any luster. Well, maybe a little. The Red Elephants could finish undefeated in the regular season for the first time since 2009. Jackson County has struggled throughout the season to finish games. Do they have enough left in the tank to push Gainesville? We don't think so.  The game can be heard live on FM 94.5 The Lake (Click to listen live).
