MAN VS. MACHINE CHALLENGE

SHARE MAN VS. MACHINE CHALLENGE

KSL-TV sportscaster Brad Steinke, departing host of Channel 5's popular SportsBeat Saturday program, kicks off the Challenge's third season. Steinke, who will soon leave the state to become sports director at the ABC affiliate in Phoenix, has unveiled the latest Deseret News rankings each week on his show - a tradition that will continue despite his departure. Each week during the prep football season, a guest picker will do battle with Noland Parry's computer-generated Power Guide in forecasting the outcome of selected games. Mankind prevailed the first year, but the Machine evened the score in 1995. Next week: Salt Lake City mayor Deedee Corradini.
