Last week saw half of the Top 10 suffering a loss thanks to a number of intersectional contests, and I think we’re going to see even more this week with the Gains for Brains showcase at Cold Spring Harbor (N.Y.).

Our honorary No. 11 Team of the Week is Fayetteville-Manlius (N.Y.), a team which beat its neighborhood rival Camillus West Genesee (N.Y.) 16-13 last week. It was the first time F-M beat West Genesee in the last 11 seasons.
