There's a logjam at the top of the 2017 state tournament expert picks entering Prep Bowl XXXVI.
After an impressive week of semifinal selections, six media members are within two games of the Fargo Forum's Chris Murphy, who still leads the competition.
Rochester Post Bulletin sportswriter Jason Feldman led the field with a 13-1 semifinal record to move within striking distance of Murphy. The experts were most successful in Class AAA, hitting on 31 of 32 selections, but struggled in Class AAAA with only 10 of 32 correct picks.
