Region 9 went 2-5 in week one. They were 2-2 in games that they were picked to win (according to Noland Parry's Power Guide) and 0-3 in games they were picked to lose.

This week the matchups don't get much easier.

Dixie (0-1) vs Mountain Ridge (1-0) 7pm | ESPN 97.7 and watch above on YouTube presented by Ideal Home and Auto Paint

Dixie is coming off a tough loss to a great Springville team. This is the third year in a row that they've lost big in the endowment game, but the good news for Flyer fans is that Dixie has always bounced back in week two.

Last year, they lost to Springville 41-14 in week one, and came out in week two and upset Riverton 17-13. I'm not predicting anything about the outcome tomorrow, I'm just expecting a lot of improvement.

Mountain Ridge is a good program that is getting better. They won seven games last year, and blasted Fremont in week one. The Flyers will have to slow down Semisis Kinikini who is one of the best running backs in the state (the best might be Teviti Valeti from Springville). Kinikini went for over 1200 yards last season and has multiple D-1 offers. Wyatt Bingham is their quarterback and he threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns in week one.
