The semifinal round of the 2018 state tournament has been completed, and there’s a tie at the top of the expert picks standings.
NFN’s Brian Jerzak correctly selected 11-of-14 semifinal games to pull into a dead heat with the Jace Frederick from the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Both experts have a 36-6 overall record, leading the field of 15 media members across Minnesota entering Prep Bowl XXXVII.
Four other experts equalled Jerzak’s 11-3 mark for the week, including Mankato Free Press sportswriter Chad Courrier. Courrier moved into a fourth-place tie with Jim Paulsen from the Minneapolis StarTribune, four games behind the leaders, but just one game behind third-place occupant Adam Rossow.
The Prep Bowl selections will be released on Thursday, November 22.
