Texas high school footballMike Says: This is for the district title with both teams coming in with undefeated records. Tatum owns this series but last years game was a classic. White Oak tied the score at 21 all with 1:07 left in the gmae and it looked to be heading into overtime. Tatum returned the kickoff though to their 49 and then scored on a 51 yard screen pass to win the game in dramatic fashion. This year, the Tatum defense has only given up 13 points but their opponents combined record is only 6-22. White Oak is going for a milestone this week trying to win their 525th all-time game. They have an all-time record of 524-286-26. Tatum will continue their winning ways in this series. The EAGLES win it 28-7!!

Texas high school footballChris Says: Tatum and White Oak have been having some great battles the last few years and this will be no different.  White Oak has a better team than a lot of people expected this season and has been whalloping their opponents.  Tatum though, has also been winning handily.   The problem with predicting this game is that both are playing very weak teams.  (Tatum's opponents are 6-22, White Oak's opponents are 9-16.)  This is a wake-up call for both teams.  Tatum EAGLES win this one 17-14!!

Texas high school footballLSG Intern Zach Says: Finally these two teams get a challenge. Both have won every game comfortably by double-figures to set up another nice matchup of unbeatens. Per usual, Andy Evans has his Eagles in the hunt in District 9-2A and has reached some impressive milestones in the process. Coaching pedigree isn’t everything though, as the Roughnecks look pretty good themselves after trashing Mineola 57-7. They come off as the more explosive team to me, and will score the road upset. Roughnecks 28-21.

Texas high school footballLSG Intern William Says: Tatum has been lighting up their competition this year with 3 shutouts so far, however the combined record of the teams they’ve played is 6-22. White Oak is also undefeated and is under the leadership of junior quarterback Dylan Gale who has thrown 1074 yards, 11 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. While the Tatum defense gives up 3.3 points per game the White Oak defense has given up 5.4. White Oaks offense may be too much to handle however. Roughnecks win 32-18.

Texas high school footballLSG Writer Scott Says: The classic case of an irresistible force against an immovable object. Led by quarterback Riley Gale, White Oak is averaging nearly 40 points per game this season and firmly has a place in the Smoaky.com East Texas power poll. On defense, the Roughnecks have given up three total touchdowns in its 5-0 start. Tatum’s unbeaten start is predicated on defense. The Eagles have given up 13 total points and have posted three shutouts. Defensive back Klifton Willis is a major reason having intercepted 10 passes this season, including two last week in a 48-0 victory over Diboll. Tatum has won 15 of the last 16 games over White Oak and continues its outstanding run with a big win, 21-16. (Thanks to Mike Garland of 247Sports for statistical information)
