Mike Says: This will be the biggest game in Houston. The Woodlands has the history with Collins first varsity season being in 2002. The Highlanders had a lot of trouble last year with Klein Oak. Collins will need a big game from running back Shane Rhodes. The TIGERS win 28-24!!!

Chris Says: The Woodlands are peaking at the perfect time.  They have produced shutouts in the last four games and outscoring their opponents 175-0 in that time.  The loss to Lufkin awoke something in this team that will be hard to put down.  The HIGHLANDERS win 28-14!!!
