Playoff picks: Round 2

With the second round of the playoffs set to get underway tomorrow, it's time for the weekly picks. Note: You won't see the game between No. 1 Maine South and Stevenson listed here, because I'm saving that preview for tomorrow.

Round 2 playoff picks

Lake Zurich (8-2) at No. 2 Glenbard West (10-0)

Saturday, 1 p.m.

Expect this to be a low-scoring affair. If Glenbard West plays mistake-free, they win.

GLENBARD WEST 17, LAKE ZURICH 10

Wheaton Warrenville South (7-3) at No. 3 Lincoln-Way East (10-0)

Friday, 7:30 p.m.

WW South is playing its best ball now, but LWE has been doing it all season. There will be a new 7A champ this year.

LINCOLN-WAY EAST 28, WHEATON WARRENVILLE SOUTH 17

Mount Carmel (7-3) at No. 5 Bolingbrook (9-1)

Saturday, 6 p.m.

Senior RB Brandon Greer takes over and leads Mount Carmel to the upset.

MOUNT CARMEL 24, BOLINGBROOK 21

Lake Forest (8-2) at No. 8 Batavia (10-0)

Saturday, 1 p.m.

I'm not wavering on Batavia. The offense should be able to move the ball against Lake Forest.

BATAVIA 35, LAKE FOREST 20

Cary Grove (8-2) at No. 10 Nazareth (9-1)

Saturday, 1 p.m.

The 6A bracket gets shaken up with this result.

CARY GROVE 20, NAZARETH 14
