WITH TWO weeks (three for some) behind us in the 2012 football season, it seems odd that we would have so many high-impact games this early in the season. A look at this week’s top games:
1. NORTHWESTERN AT BYRNES
The biggest ticket in South Carolina and perhaps the nation will be Northwestern, ranked No. 64 in the country, traveling to Duncan to take on the nation’s No. 4 team, the Byrnes Rebels.
The Greenwood Eagles will take their fifth-ranked team to Irmo to take on an improved (albeit 0-2) Yellow Jacket team in a game that could be dangerous for the Eagles.
