Waffles vs. Alabama Slammers
Waffles vs. Slammers is the ESPN Game of the Week, pitting the latest leaders against the fourth-placed Alabama team. Waffles appear to have pulled through their injury crisis and have been unstoppable of late. They have won their last five games, most of them by five points or more. The Slammers have also rebounded from a slow start, and have been victorious in six of their past seven, only dropping a round to Trumboner. Who will continue their run? Can Waffles hold on at the top of a very competitive division?
