No. 10 Basha at No. 2 Chandler: Two weeks ago, Chandler won 49-7 and everyone beyond Arizona Ave. shook their heads. Is Chandler that good? Is Basha that bad? The Wolves might be that good, they have been most of the season. But Basha is much better than that, and the second time around will show that. The obviously keys for Basha to pull off this upset are defense and Rajhan Meriwether. Neither of which got going in the first meeting, but Meriwether has been a workhorse since the Week 9 meeting (54 carries, 334 yards in past two games). Doing it against Chandler will be tougher than Gilbert or Horizon, but the Bears are really dangerous when they can run with even one degree of effectiveness to open up the potent passing game. Chandler’s offense may prove too difficult to stop for four quarters, and the Bears have been prone to turnovers and, at times, penalties at the wrong time, but it’ll be more like a real Chandler-rivalry matchup than the fluke of Week 9.

Prediction: Chandler 41, Basha 31
