Buford-Yulee highlights weekend's top FB games

Get in the mood for tonight's games with a look at some of last week's best action across the country, including Camden County's win during the Kirk Herbstreit Classic, in the video below.

Game of the Week: Buford (3-0) vs. Yulee (0-1)

The cameras continue to follow Buford around the country. Just two weeks after facing Gainesville in a contest aired on ESPN3.com, the four-time defending Class AA champs will host Yulee (Yulee, Fla.) tonight on ESPNU. Yulee features ESPNHS All-American and Georgia commit Derrick Henry, a junior RB who rushed for nearly 3,000 yards and 39 scores last season. Buford’s offense has been clicking on all cylinders under the direction of QB Sam Clay as the Wolves have topped the 35-point mark in each of their first three contests. RBs Andre Johnson (three) and Nathan Staub combined for five TDs in last week's win over Carver. The defense, anchored by LB Dillon Lee and Jaylen Mize in the secondary, has allowed only one touchdown thus far.

David's Pick: How can anyone pick against Buford right now? Henry will get his, but the Wolves will dominate, 35-17.

Some other games to watch

Brookwood (1-1) vs. Dacula (1-1)

The lone blemish on Class AAAAA champ Brookwood’s record last year was a 24-14 setback against Dacula in September. The Broncos get their shot at revenge as they try to drop Dacula to 0-3 tonight. Preseason No. 1 Brookwood bounced back from a humbling loss to Lassiter with a win over Collins Hill last week. Michigan State commit Nick Tompkins (119 yards) and Jamaal Cole (2 TDs) led the way on offense. Dacula will turn to QB Brandyn Bartlett to try and pull off the upset for the second straight year.

Collins Hill (2-0) at MLK (1-1)

Slow starts have characterized Collins Hill during their 1-1 start this fall. The Eagles were able to overcome a 17-point lead to defeat Roswell in the opener but fell short against Brookwood after falling behind by 21. MLK, which won last year’s contest 43-36, has its offense rolling under QB Jonquel Dawson and Blake Tibbs, hanging 33 points on South Gwinnett last week.
