MAN VS. MACHINE CHALLENGE

Utah Jazz president Frank Layden is this week's Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Deseret News' Man versus Machine competition. In a continual quest for prep football prediction supremacy, Layden will match wits in 36 games with Noland Parry's Power Guide - a computer generated pick'ems operation.

While the human race holds a one-game edge in the overall competition, the Power Guide did manage to topple Sports Radio 570 star Chris Tunis last week, 20-17.Will the trend continue?

Stay tuned.
