Ultimate Roadtrip: Week 5

I'll be taking a note from ESPN's Big XII team and talk about the games that I think will highlight each week and which ones will be the best to attend! This list will be based on the teams playing, the stadium, the possible implications of the game, and of course how rowdy and exciting the atmosphere will be! Of course, these games will be based on my pre-season thoughts on each team so the best games for each week might change as time moves forward. 

NOTE: I will try to avoid adding venues outside of the Sunflower League unless a game truly becomes a can't miss situation. That means no Garden City, Blue Valley, or other schools of the sort.

Olathe South @ SM West

This is just a game that should include two hard working teams trying to scavenge every win they can get. SM West will likely be in a better situation than the Falcons, but both teams can be expected to give us a great game that doesn't stick out on paper, but you could still find yourself enjoying this game thoroughly. Olathe South tends to have pretty loyal fans regardless of the opponent, so you can expect a decently sized away crowd this week.

This is making up to be Game of the Year material. SM East doesn't have many challenges this year, but by god did they get a perfect team to show how good they really are. That doesn't mean Free State will just be a bigger step for the Lancers. The Firebirds went into last year's game as a small underdog, but they will likely be an even match or even a favorite in some minds. If the stars align and both teams enter the game at 4-0, this will be a must-see for any fan of high school football.
