Coming off perfection in Week 2 of the high school football season, The Post and Courier’s Phil Bowman and ABC News 4’s John Nugent didn’t do so well in Week 3.
After both prognosticators went 6-0 in Week 2, they were just miserable last week, and it all started Thursday with Colleton County’s huge upset of Wando.
Bowman managed a 4-2 record, while Nugent was 3-3.
“There is only one way to go, but knowing John and me, it might be reverse,” Bowman predicted.
Bowman is 15-3 for the season; Nugent is 13-5.
