Football: A human and computer predict Week 9 results

After the computer did so well in predicting the outcome of last week’s Olympia-Bellarmine Prep contest — it predicted a 16-13 BP win and the final was 15-14 — I asked Scott Odiorne, who compiles the computer rankings we’ve been running this season, to run some projections for games in Week 9.

Here’s the lineup:

Computer: No. 5 Woodinville 18, No. 1 Eastlake 16

Pacey: Lewis & Clark 20, Central Valley 17
