Ernie Clark is back for another year of Ernesto's Surefire Prognostications each Friday during the fall on The Drive, and this year we (Ernie) had the brilliant idea to put it on the website for all to see as you make your way to the games across the state.

Don't forget, Ticket TV has its first Friday Night Football contest of the year at 7 p.m. with Jim Churchill and Ernie on the call of Brewer vs. Hermon for the Witches and Hawks first-ever meeting on the gridiron.

Coverage begins at 6:45 p.m. Just go to the homepage of this website or use The Ticket App to watch the broadcast for free.

Now, without further ado, here's who Ernesto's got in the winners column for Week 1 of the 2023 high school football season, plus a pair of local college teams playing their season openers tomorrow -
