Pioneer High School and Huron High School have nearly 3,500 students combined.
Milan High School has less than a thousand.
So consider the early returns of the AnnArbor.com “Game of the Week” Week 8 poll a possible upset brewing.
Milan’s game against Carleton Airport leads this week’s poll with 296 votes as of just after 1 p.m. Monday, 42 percent of the total.
In second place is the Ann Arbor rivalry game, Pioneer at Huron, with 141 votes. Saline at Skyline has garnered 116 votes, Michigan Center at Manchester has 78 and Dexter at Chelsea has 63.
The Pioneer-Huron game jumped out to a lead Friday when the poll was posted, but Milan fans staged a comeback over the weekend and hold the midday Monday lead.
The two games have just over a day left to duke it out. Voting closes at 6 p.m. Tuesday
Huron will be looking to snap a nine-game losing streak against its crosstown rival Friday, while Pioneer will look to earn its fifth win to become playoff eligible.
Milan continues its quest for an undefeated season, and can wrap up the Huron League title outright with a Friday win.
