After nearly two full weeks of voting, our first Game of the Week poll of the season continues to shatter records.

As of noon Friday, we were north of 5,800 votes in the poll for this week -- nearly doubling the vote total of any of our previous polls last season, with four days left to vote.

We’ve had votes come in from 43 states and five foreign countries (Canada voted 80 percent for the London A.B. Lucas/Saline matchup).

And Lincoln continues to hold strong at nearly 60 percent of the total, up to more than 3,300 total votes. Milan’s game against Ypsilanti and Father Gabriel Richard’s opener against Lake Fenton are both above 600 votes -- totals that would win most weeks’ voting, but aren’t enough against Splitter Nation.

Lincoln will open its season next Friday at home against Belleville, a team it has beaten each of the last two years. Should it hold on to win, we’ll be out there with multiple game stories, a live chat, photos and more.
