Scott's Lock: Cashion's time to shine

At this point in the season, there really aren’t any bad matchups or easy picks left to be made. Every game has the potential for a showdown.

I definitely think that will be the case with Cashion and Ringling, but I look for Cashion to pull it out. They’re the team I picked to win it all from the start of the playoffs and the emergence of a star receiver in Taylor Cochran has helped a ton.

Cochran went for 216 yards and three scores last week, his third 100-yard-plus game since top receiver Britt Basler was lost for the year with a torn ACL last month.

But it’s been the offensive line play that has really made this team go. Starting right tackle Brandon Nixon is expected to return from injury this week, giving them a strong pair of bookend tackles, with 6-foot-4, 300-pound Dexton Robertson on the other side.

The line only returned two starters from last year’s 12-win team, but the new group came together quickly and has been a huge key in protecting QB Jeremy Seaton and opening holes in the run game.

I’d expect another strong performance from the front five in a Cashion victory.
