OHIO FOOTBALL PICKS

Roger Bacon vs. Wyoming
        • WHEN: 7:30 p.m. today.

        • WHERE: Wyoming High School, 106 Pendery Ave., Wyoming.

        • WHAT TO WATCH: Both teams posted impressive victories last week, with Wyoming beating Kings and Roger Bacon topping Mount Healthy.

        Wyoming is led by David Dupee (182 yards rushing) and quarterback Kyle Lewis (4-of-9 for 102 yards).

        Traditionally a running team, Roger Bacon went to the air against Mount Healthy as sophomore quarterback Josh Hausfeld combined with Mike McManus on two scoring plays.

        • PICK: Wyoming

Elder vs. Boone County
        • WHEN: 7:30 p.m. today

        • WHERE: Elder High School, 3900 Vincent Ave., Price Hill.

        • WHAT TO WATCH: Based on Elder's performance against Walsh Jesuit, the Panthers will be too much for a Boone County team that lost to Covington Catholic.

        Elder is balanced using the passing of quarterback Collin Carey with the running of bruising fullback Kyle Koester.

        If the Boone County's secondary, which couldn't stop Covington Catholic quarterback Brett Dietz (20-of-27), isn't up to the task, this game could be over early.

        • PICK: Elder

Sycamore vs. LaSalle
        • WHEN: 7:30 p.m. today

        • WHERE: LaSalle High School, 3091 N. Bend Road, Cincinnati.

        • WHAT TO WATCH: Starting the season with a victory over Princeton was what LaSalle needed to build confidence.

        Sycamore also was impressive in an opening 35-6 win over Mason as tailback Sean Camp ran for 128 yards.

        Tailback Alex Long had two TDs last week for LaSalle.

        • Pick: Sycamore.

Oak Hills vs. Western Hills
        • WHEN: 7:30 p.m. today.

        • WHERE: Western Hills High School, 2144 Ferguson Road, Western Hills.

        • WHAT TO WATCH: Both teams are coming off losses and need a victory to turn the season around.

        Oak Hills only scored once against Colerain. Against Beechwood, Western Hills was shutout but coach Ed Youngs was encouraged, promising the Mustangs will be a much better team this week.

        • PICK: Oak Hills.

Purcell Marian vs. Winton Woods
        • WHEN: 7:30 p.m. today

        • WHERE: Winton Woods High School, 1231 W. Kemper Road, Forest Park.

        • WHAT TO WATCH: This long standing series has been evenly played the past six years and another close game is expected.

        Purcell Marian running backs Vince Berry and Justin Blackley combined for 360 yards in a victory over Amelia. Winton Woods also has two good backs in D.J. Johnson and Corey Jones.

        • PICK: Purcell Marian
