  • Mike Says:  Both of these teams play old fashioned football. They like to run the football and play tough defense. El Campo is the new comer to Class 3A and a newcomer to the lights of being in the LSG Game Of The Week. Bellville lost a game of the week earlier this year to Giddings and is now 0-2 all-time in the big games. This is the district opener for El Campo while Bellville had no problem with Columbus in their opener. The district will come down to these two teams and Sealy so this is a big one that will go a long way in determining the district champion. The RICEBIRDS win it 32-12!!
  • Chris Says:  This is a good matchup and will determine a lot about playoff matchups because both will be playing after regular season ends.   This is one of the tougher games this week to pick because you just don't know which Bellville team is going to show up.  If the one that got drubbed by Houston Kinkaid takes the field, El Campo will roll them.  El Campo has played solid all season on both sides of the ball.  For that reason, I say the RICEBIRDS take the win 31-28!!!

Are you a fan of either team? Call the voicemail line and leave a message about the game (713) 568-6361. Tell everyone at your school to do the same – then listen in future Lone Star Gridiron Shows to hear them all!!!

    I think the El Campo defense will be too tough for Bellville. Ricebird win 28-7.
