    Mclean is going to come out and hold the ball, and try to keep Somerset's offense off the field. Only problem is that this is best run defense they have seen, and they have no passing game. Somerset will score quick, but I don't see Somerset running up the score. I honestly feel you will see a lot of subs going in and out. They will want to get some of the starters off the field as soon as possible to keep the chance of a injury low. Mclean will score, but I feel it will be late, and if no turnovers it will be all Somerset. Somerset is to big, talented, and fast for Mclean by what I've seen on film. 42-13 Somerset.

    Wait - Somerset just scored 2 TD's while they were still in school. I'm guessing Somerset scores EARLY and often. Great season McLean, but it ends tonight.

    If McLean were better at what they are "good" at (running the football), I would say they have a shot. But I've seen this offense operate enough to know they aren't potent enough to beat (or even hang with) Somerset. They would have to play a near perfect game (score on every possession and win the turnover battle) to pull off the upset.

    McLean with a double reverse pass, underthrown but caught for about a 30 yard gain.
