Games This Week
HUFFMAN over BRIDGE CITY—The Cardinals also need to play a high-profile opponent and found one in Huffman. Hopefully the Redbirds will play as well or better than in last week’s victory over Tarkington.
LITTLE CYPRESS-MAURICEVILLE over KATY JORDAN—Most teams in the Katy ISD are very competitive, but we don’t know much about this one. If the Battlin’ Bears continue to improve each week, they should come out on top tomorrow (Thursday) night.
ORANGEFIELD over LIVINGSTON—We underestimated the Bobcats’ talent level last week and believe they will continue this great play Friday at McClain Stadium.
VIDOR over BRAZOSPORT—The Pirates are shooting for their third victory in as many games but may find a stubborn opponent.
DEWEYVILLE over COLMESNEIL - The Pirates have been doing most of the right things to win football games and should continue to do so Friday night at home.
UTSA over LAMAR—The Cards travel to San Antonio where UTSA fans are still celebrating their team’s upset victory over Illinois on Saturday. Perhaps they will look past the Cardinals, but it’s not likely.
LSU over McNEESE STATE—Both teams must have been looking past their opponent last week and paid for it with a loss. LSU was favored by 2 ½ points over UCLA and were completely outclassed while the Cowboys were favored by a touchdown over West Florida and also were upset 42-36.
