Anyone have two to three upsets that wouldn't be completely unpredictable? Or who will have the closest games on this list?

Here are my two upsets of the first round. (Upset I categorized as an away team beating the host team)
Cardinal @ Pekin- UPSET!
This is the Backyard Brawl and was a game scheduled for the regular season, but was cancelled. I believe Pekin is the more physical team and is able to compete with better teams, however Cardinal has the better athletes. I believe the athletes are able to spread the ball around and win a high scoring game! 38-36 CARDINAL!

ACGC @ Pleasantville - UPSET!

ACGC is coming in with a 3-4 record while Pleasantville loked like they were going to run away with that districts championship. However, I-35 upended the Trojans in week 7 and I look for the same to happened against ACGC. I believe Pleasantville has been successful this year due to their ability to be more physical than their opposition. This week I believe the down hill rushing attack of ACGC will be too much! Low scoring game between these two with ACGC tacking on a score late in the game. 27-14 ACGC

Actually SK-Pekin is the backyard brawl, wasn’t much of a brawl this year though...

1A is boring in the first round, I picked A-P over Osage, but honestly both of those are just very mediocre football teams, Missouri Valley lost to East Sac last time, but who knows maybe them pull an upset. Pekin vs Cardinal could be a close game, but I think Pekin is probably better, and if ACGC has close to their full roster they could hang with Pleasantville, I believe they only had like 20 kids for one of their games. But overall it wouldn't surprise me to see every home team win.

I'll go with all of the home teams in round 1, but I'll go out on a limb and predict Hinton over S-O. Hinton has had their season torpedoed by Covid. I think they only had 22 kids on the sideline when they played against my kids' team. If they have all their players available, I think they could knock off the Generals.
