With Week 2 of the fearless forecast in the books, I’m happy to be on the plus-side of the guessing game. Still, 2-1 is better than the 2-2 spot I put up last week to open the season.

This week will see some familiar faces play each other, and one unfamiliar matchup that required me to dig into history to make a good guess.

Here goes:

Bountiful: 28

Logan: 31

The Grizzlies haven’t put up the video game-type numbers we’re used to seeing in the first two weeks of the season, but there could be a number of reasons behind it.

The team has a new quarterback still learning some of the signal calling duties under center. Even though he has experience on the team, playing quarterback takes some getting used to.

It took a last-minute touchdown to beat Northridge to open the season, and the team’s 24-point output against lowly Cottonwood wasn’t too impressive either.

However, the one thing Logan has done over the past three meetings with the Braves has been scoring touchdowns. Last season’s 35-14 win was preceded by a pair of wins in 2012: a 56-31 win in the regular season followed by a 59-30 win in the playoffs.

On the plus side, Bountiful is returning quite a few players from those last three meetings in two years, so the losses are something they would like to avenge.

This game is a toss-up, but I give a slight edge to Logan due to home-field advantage.

Woods Cross: 35

Viewmont: 21

The Wildcats have torn open the offensive playbook this season, scoring 33 and 41 points in the first two weeks of the season, both leading to wins.

The Vikings had a little bit of a Jekyll-and-Hyde moment last week, going from 20 points and a stellar defense to beat Bonneville, to laying a goose egg and getting smothered on offense against the Braves.

It’s tough to tell which Vikings team will show up for this game, because during their short two-year history as opponents, each of the teams has claimed a victory.

The advantage goes to Woods Cross on two fronts: the Wildcats are at home and they can score in bunches.

Davis: 42

Taylorsville: 7

The Darts are on a roll, and they don’t look to be slowing down anytime soon.

Against its first two opponents to open the season, Davis scored 45 and 38 points.

They’ve allowed a combined 14 points in those games, so the defense looks as good as it’s ever been.

Taylorsville has been a little bit of a surprise this season. The Warriors already have a pair of wins, doubling last year’s total.

However, they’ve come against two lowly teams in Kearns and Murray, both 0-2, and are approaching their first real test of the season.

Davis wins in a landslide, setting up a fun region opener against Syracuse next Thursday.

Until next week.

Last week: 2-1

This season: 4-3

Last week: 2-1

This season: 4-3
