We’ve reached the final week of the regular season with several region champions yet to be crowned.

Here are the best games of the week for Cherokee County football:

Game: Milton (8-0, 4-0) at Cherokee (8-1, 3-1)
Last meeting: Milton won 28-21
Series: Milton leads 18-14
Prediction: Cherokee 24, Milton 21
