Beverly Hicks, of Camden, won the fall football contest for week 10, correctly picking 14 of 16 games for the week. Her win comes via the tie-break rule, as Mike Hensley also made 14 correct picks – in fact, he and Hicks missed on the same two high school games!
Hicks nailed the tie-break question, while Hensley was off by one point. He guessed 66 would be the highest score, while Hicks wrote 65. The week’s highest score came in the extremely mismatched game between UT Knoxville and UT Martin, where the Vols continued their undefeated 2022 season by trouncing the Skyhawks 65-24.
The only games Hicks and Hensley got wrong last week were the contests of Huntingdon at Peabody and Obion County at Dresden. Huntingdon bested Peabody 41-28, while Obion County topped Dresden 42-21.
