Mike Says: Another great East Texas matchup. The glaring stat here is that Daingerfield lost to 3A Atlanta by 31 and Gilmer beat Atlanta by 21. This will be Gilmer's opening home game after going on the road for the past 4 games. This will only be Daingerfield's 2nd road game since week 0 in one of LSG's game of the week vs. Arp. The Buckeyes bring a strong offense that has 1162 rushing yards and 744 passing yards through 4 games. QB Luke Turner (300 rushing 744 passing) and RB Gavin Holt (344 rushing) lead the offense. On defense they are led by LB Josh Walker (34 tackles 3 sacks), LB Adam Witcher (30 tackles), LB Colton Hill (28 tackles) and DB Tanner Barr (2 INTs 11 tackles). Just like their last 5 games, this will be no contest. The BUCKEYES win 30-13!!

Chris Says: Sometimes you get a game in the Games of the Week that may not be a great battle, but you know will be entertaining.  This one made the list just because it features two of the best programs in East Texas going head to head.  Sure, I would like to say that it will be a tight battle.  Sure, I will probably eat my words if Daingerfield steps up like they seem to do every time I start to doubt them.  Sure, this looks like an easy win for Gilmer.  Wow.  I am once again stalling because I cannot bring myself to pick against Daingerfield.  Well, until I look at Gilmer.  What the heck, GILMER wins 31-30!!!
