It may be a holiday weekend, but our Game of the Week voters aren't taking time off.

In the three days since our second weekly poll opened on Friday afternoon, we've seen 700 votes cast between the five choices.

And the leader, with just over a day to go until our vote closes, is Milan's Huron League opener at Riverview. The Big Reds' game has just over 300 votes, about 50 ahead of Ypsilanti at Saline. The poll will remain open until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Three other games are also in the running for the poll: Skyline at Dexter, Pioneer at Dearborn Edsel Ford and Chelsea at Belleville.

Milan opened its season Friday with a 13-6 win over Ypsilanti, in a contest that was delayed by lightning for a day.

Saline, meanwhile, started its season with a bang in a 42-0 win over London A.B. Lucas.

Hey Kyle, I also looked at the comments for nominations. Over 90% were for Lincoln!! Don't penalize a fan base that has taken to their team. For years, Lincoln was not a winning program. Now the entire community has galvanized behind this team. They should be rewarded, not penalized.

Kyle, Splitter Nation will be keeping track of the weekly nominations...just cause we bring the votes, don't pass us by more than anyone else!

No Splitter Nation this week? Well, if you don't get "nominated", I guess you don't get votes. Who do we "adopt" for game of the week Splitter Nation?
