ATLANTA, GA - You knew an upset would come in Week 11 you just didn't know from where. Well you didn't have to look no further than the GDFL Game of the Week, one of them anyway. The Clarksville Eagles pulled an upset and got revenge all in one full swoop. The Eagles upended their cross-town rivals the No.23 Clarksville Wolfpack 26-13.
In the other Game of the Week the No.12 Asheville Grizzlies clinched the Appalachian Division and also were successful in their revenge in knocking of the No.18 Carolina Bulldogs. Grizzlies quarterback Mike Byrd threw two touchdowns to Tyree Allen and ran for another one. Devon Gardner, Shamless Menefee and Creon Logan also had touchdown runs. The Grizzlies defense got in the act also by recording a safety. It's been a tough couple weeks for the Bulldogs who have dropped their last two games after starting the season undefeated and being ranked as high as No.7 at one point this season.
