Trying to predict a game of the week throughout the whole season could be considered a waste of time.  The opinion of a game of the week could change at a moment’s notice.  One  game doesn’t go the way that the so called experts thought it would go or one team does things that people didn’t think they were capable would change everything.

It might be interested to see as the season plays out, how many of these games will really be considered the Game of the Week when we get to that week.

Week 0—Friday August 30th…Santa Rosa at Petaluma

Why the first week of the regular season is called week 0 is anyone’s guess.  With most of the traditional games gone, this is a nice start to the high school football season.  It is the longest series in the area and also one of three NBL-SCL games.

Week 1—Friday September 6th…Analy at Maria Carrillo

If any early season game proves it can set a tone for things to come, this game did last year. 

Week 2—Saturday September 14th….El Cerrito at Cardinal Newman

Two Division 3 powers took turns losing thrillers to Section Champion Marin Catholic in the 2012 playoffs.

Week 3—Friday September 20th…Rancho Cotate at American Canyon

Both teams went into their section playoffs undefeated in 2012.

Week 4—Friday September 27th…St. Vincent at CSD (Fremont)

Two teams that tied for NCL II/Bay League Title

Week 5—Friday October 4th…Piner at Analy

Piner gave Analy its closest league game of 2012

Week 6—Saturday October 12th…Sonoma Valley at Piner

Analy is everyone’s favorite to win the SCL but if that doesn’t happen, the winner of this game could take the crown.

Week 7—Friday October 18th…Rancho Cotate at Casa Grande

First NBL game that makes game of the week. You have a feeling there will be more.

Week 8—Friday October 25th…Fort Bragg at St. Helena

These two teams decided the 2012 NCL I race with a classic.

Week 9—Friday November 1st…Rancho Cotate at Cardinal Newman

No explanation needed

No explanation needed for this one either
