McClintock at No. 9 Tempe

Another rivalry resumes, and with even more mini subplots than just the three miles separating the schools: Tempe QB Emanuel Gant's father, Terrance, is an assistant at McClintock, plenty more kids who know each other, and a 32-27 Tempe win in Week 1 last year. McClintock (2-0) waltzed through Phoenix Carl Hayden and Phoenix Christian, respectively, in the first two weeks, so the Buffaloes are going to be a few notches up the ladder competitively for McClintock. Tempe (2-0) is going to have to keep up with the Chargers' fast-paced offense (snaps every 7-15 seconds is the goal) so the Buffaloes need to stay fresh and get off the field on third downs. Tempe's faced tough tasks already this season in Maricopa from Week 1 and survived, and that experience might be the tipping point. Down to the wire again? No reason to think otherwise.

Prediction:  Tempe 27, McClintock 24
