Georgia football playoff primer

Let's take a look at four marquee matchups for this week's football playoffs.

Colquitt County (10-2) at Camden County (12-0)

Player of the Year candidate J.J. Green and QB Brice Ramsey have the offense buzzing with nine 50-point outings this fall, so Camden will be a tough test for a stout Colquitt defense. The Packers are allowing just under 13 points a contest and have given up 17 points combined in their first two playoff wins. Camden has had the edge in this series winning four of the seven contests, including a victory in the 2009 semifinals.

Lassiter (9-3) at MLK (12-0)

Lassiter upset state champ Brookwood to open the season. Now they hope to take down the team that ousted the Broncos from the playoffs. Look out for the passing games in this one as Lassiter's Eddie Printz (25 TDs) and MLK's Jonquel Dawson (35 TDs) are two of the state's top signal-callers.

Warner Robins (10-2) at East Paulding (12-0)

The Demons have come a long way from last year's two-win campaign. Last week, Robins took down defending champ Chattahoochee and they look to keep it rolling against East Paulding and star RB Kamani Thomas. The Raiders have outscored their opponents, 455-95, this season.

Fitzgerald (11-1) at Carver-Columbus (11-1)

The winner of this contest will likely face defending champ Buford in the state semis. The Tigers haven't missed RB Isaiah Crowell too much as the offense has produced 35 points a contest this fall, while the defense has held nine opponents to single digits. Fitzgerald has reeled off 11 straight wins since a Week 1 loss to Tift County. The Hurricanes have put up 40-plus points in each of its their first two playoff games.

We want to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving and hope you have an enjoyable holiday season. Check back for highlights from this weekend's action on Monday.
