Man vs. Machine challenge

With three weeks left in the regular high school football season, it appears Machine is going to need a, well, superhuman effort to catch up with Mankind in their tete-a-tete. Deseret News prep editor Jody Genessy upped his lead to nine games over Noland Parry's computerized Power Guide by correctly predicting 34 of 43 winners last week. Overall, Genessy has picked 188 of 252 games (74.6 percent) while the Power Guide has tabbed 179 winners (71 percent). There are 38 games on the line today.
