Twenty years ago I used to circular reason like you laid out, but matchups in football are very different one program to another and scheme of each is different, weather is different making score comparisons of little value. That said I totally agree but more from the standpoint of Riversides line is tough, their qb is excellent, but other skill positions are not up to Milton's IMO. I'm not the sharpest football mind though, which is why I'm on here and not out on the field with a group of teenagers right now.Gotta think Milton wins over Riverside rather easily.
I know it's dangerous to score watch, but even throwing out the NR game Riverside lost to IL 48-19 (could've been worse).
IL lost to Springfield Shawnee 41-29
Shawnee lost to VV 25-7
VV lost to Milton 26-22
Overall I think Riverside plays hard for a share of the conference title, but MU wins this one 44-12
