Lovington NM @ #70 4A DII Denver CityChris20wredMike20w

Chris20wred Knowing absolutely nothing about Lovington, NM football and even with Denver City being a middle of the road 4A team, I have to go with Texas.

FINAL: Denver City 38, Lovington, New Mexico 21

#22 4A DI StephenvilleMike20w @ #66 5A Cleburne

Cleburne will be trying for their 600th All-Time Win

Mike20w Stephenville by 1

FINAL: Cleburne 66, Stephenville 40

Hoover Alabama @ #8 6A Allen Chris20wredMike20w feedback football

Allen will be going for their 400th all-time win

Chris20wred A few years back this would have been a better matchup but even Hoover at their best was not competitive against the best in Texas. There is a lot of talk about Allen being weaker without E.J. Ndoma (who transferred to the Death Star called IMG Academy) but that just makes it an interesting matchup.

feedback football Allen 93% - Hoover 7%

FINAL: Allen 25, Hoover, Alabama 7

Union Oklahoma @ #7 6A Southlake Carroll Chris20wredMike20w

Southlake Carroll will be going for their 500th all-time win

Chris20wred Let me just say, "Texas forever!" If Oklahoma football could compete against Texas, they wouldn't have needed to raid our players for the OU National Championship wins.

FINAL: Union , Oklahoma 21, Southlake Carroll 10

#14 6A The Woodlands Chris20wred Mike20w @ #54 6A Cypress Fairbanks

Chris20wred Cy Fair is a good team but there is something special about a head football coach who has his son in his Senior year playing QB. Add that to the fact that The Woodlands is traditionally a team that starts fast in the season and you have a Highlanders win.

Mike20w The Woodlands by 2 - I am expecting a close defensive battle just like last years 28-7 win by The Woodlands. The Highlanders lead this series 4-1 since 2002. Their 2002 game was a Bi-District game that The Woodlands won 21-14

FINAL: The Woodlands 23, Cypress Fairbanks 20

#31 6A Abilenefeedback football @ #25 6A San Angelo CentralChris20wredMike20w
Abilene will be going for their 675th all-time win
Abilene leads this series 44-42-5 all-time vs. Central

Chris20wred These two are now in separate districts and both are expected to win theirs. Last year Abilene surprised a Central team that a lot of folks thought were better with a 31-24 victory. This year, San Angelo Central gets revenge.

Mike20w Central by 5 points

FINAL: Austin Bowie 7, Pflugerville 0

#8 5A TempleChris20wredMike20w feedback football @ #44 6A Belton

Chris20wred The top of a lower class is usually much stronger than the middle of an upper class. This will be a tight one because Belton is still ranked pretty high in 6A and they have home field advantage.

Mike20w Temple by 1 This will be a must watch game

feedback football Temple 86% - Belton 14%

FINAL: Temple 28, Belton 20

#23 6A Fort Bend Ridge Point Chris20wredMike20w @ #100 6A Humble Kingwood

Mike20w Lufkin by 2

Chris20wred Going to college at SFA, these two programs are both very dear to me. Rankings mean nothing when they meet and I keep going back and forth on who to pick. I am going to weeny out and just pick "great game - must see!"

#2 6A Katy feedback football @ #1 6A Austin Westlake Chris20wredMike20w

Be sure to check out the video interviews with Coach Gary Joseph and DC Matt McDaniel

Chris20wred Westlake has a couple things going for them in this matchup. 1 - Katy spends much of the pre-district figuring out who is the best player at each position. Because of that, they don't always go "all in" for a game that really has no bearing on the team's success. Coach Joseph has a season plan that outweighs his game plan. As it is hard to beat the same team twice and likely the two will meet again in the postseason, better to learn a few things this time and pull out the big guns when in the playoffs. 2 - Coach Todd Dodge too is a brilliant tactician and his star QB Sam Ehlinger a brilliant talent. The electricity in the stadium will be the equivalent of a title fight. The fans may just "will" the team to victory.

#142 6A Buda Hays Consolidated Chris20wred feedback football @ #161 5A Georgetown East View Mike20w
Buda will be playing for their 325th all-time win

Chris20wred Yes, this is a homer pick. I live less than a mile from the stadium and my boy is a RB on the varsity. But even if that weren't the case, I think Hays Consolidated has the defense to keep this game close and come out with a road victory.

Mike20w Chris has always been a homer. East View upsets Buda by 1
