Top Matchups:Wylie, Albany, Roscoe featured

July 11, 2017 - The Wylie Bulldogs and the Argyle Eagles aren't in the same district. They aren't even in the same region, but they are still rivals. The 'Dogs and the Eagles meet for the sixth year in a row. Argyle holds a four to two edge in the series, but Wylie won the most recent game in the third week of the playoffs. The Bulldogs rolled to a 35-14 victory on their way to the Class 4A Division I state championship game. The regular season meeting between the two state powers was washed out by a thunderstorm in 2016. Let's hope that doesn't happen, again. This year, Wylie enters the regular season meeting with seven starters back, including five on the defense that shut down the Argyle offense. The Eagles are ranked third in the state by Texas Football to get the year started. The Bulldogs open 2017 at number six. Hugh Sandifer likes to challenge his team in non-district, and it looks like the Bulldogs will be challenged again this year.

Week Three gives a great looking match up in Class 2A Division II between a school that is established as one of the powerhouses in Division II and a school that would like to take their place. The Albany Lions, the established, travel to Roscoe to take on the Plowboys in a non-district meeting. This season, Denney Faith's team enters the season as the third ranked team in the state and they are favored to win their district. The Plowboys are ranked 11th by Texas football, and Jake Freeman's team is picked to finish second behind Hamlin. This is the eleventh meeting between the two school since 2004. Albany came out on top in eight of the last ten meetings. The Lions won last year, 48-7. Roscoe's last win in the series came ten years, ago.
