No. 1 Buford travels to Marietta tonight for a Class 7A game that is probably tougher for the Wolves than most might assume given Marietta’s 1-4 record. Pardon the cliché, but Marietta truly is “the best 1-4 team in the state,” according to the computer Maxwell Ratings. Marietta is the best of 23 teams with that record. They’ve beaten West Forsyth, which is 3-1 otherwise, and lost to four top-10 Class 7A teams by an average of 13 points. Below are the GHSA’s best teams by record, according to Maxwell.

0-5: Apalachee

0-4: Hapeville Charter*

0-3: Seckinger
