"Not every kid that's playing this year got to play the bug stage at Texas Stadium, but they were a part of it. They got to experience the atmosphere of Texas Stadium, and I'm pretty sure that's going to help us. We're expecting a big crowd out at Anson. We feel there will be a lot of energy on the football field, and we'd like to think that our past experience would pay off thid Friday night," said head coach Wayne Hutchinson.
"It's just another game but it's also a bigger game. You can't think of it any other way. You've just got to go play your game. You've just got to go out and play, and we've been on the biggest stage in Texas twice. That's a big advantage on our part," said Bo Wimberly.
The Bulldogs are also coming off a bye week, and they are once again focused on preparing for the game. Rather than focusing on all of the hype that surrounds it.
"I told our kids it's usually the quiet guy that worries me. As long as we're quiet and tending to our business, taking care of what we're supposed to do and taking care of us. We'll let our play do the talking on the field and hopefully we'll be focused and do that," said Hutchinson.
The Bulldogs and Tigers will kick-off at 7:30 on Friday night in Anson.
