I know my prediction might be outrageous but I try to calculate factors before I predict outcomes. If I'm wrong, I will eat a buffet of Crow....I know Carthage will win but I am sticking with my thoughts on this game...I pray for safe travels and a injury free game for both programs.

IMHO,this year Carthage ain't gon ring the bell for 42 points again a real defense.But in their defense,they don't have too,the dawg d ain't gonna give up a bunch of points and force the o to have to score half a hunnert.js ima say 28-32 Carthage and Lampasas around 14-17 or so...somthin along those lines...now a pick six or a fumble recovery inside of the 20 will change that around but I'll say that on the defensive side..lol

If you watch the film of Lampasas and Needville, I have a feeling you would say Carthage’s offense will have to have a really bad day to score less than 40 - it could happen. Lampasas defensive backs don’t have the speed to cover 3 of the 4 Carthage receivers for much time.  
Needville had several long pass plays against Lampasas with guys that can’t break 4.6. Carthage has something like 4.4, 4.5 and 4.6 going at them.

There’s definitely a Showdown brewing between Carthage & LaVega, & if that game happens, it will be Epic! One Game at a time...

Ain't that the truth!  Although we'd heard of Liberty Hill before,  since they gave us a beat down in 07 en route to their back to back title run.  LH has a lot to brag about.  I think them and el campo are the only 2 teams we've met in playoffs who haven't lost to Coach S.

Lampasas will be the first Ranked 4A-D1 team that Carthage will face this season.  

In the playoffs I assume cause PG definitely was ranked. Carthage has the easiest route to get to Jerry World.

Yea but they beat an excellent 4A-D2 team at their house in PG.

Well depends on which rankings because Henderson has been ranked top 10 this season also Marshall has too in 5adiv 2

I'm talking about the final ranking which is usually the best measure after 11 week of football have been played.  Marshall finished 7-4 not a top 10 5a-d2 team if they still had that QB it might be a different story.

Just enrollment only. Pleasant Grove would absolutely beat up on half of the 4a teams and did with Henderson and Chapel Hill. Carthage makes teams look silly with D2 #

Bigger aint always better

Didn't La Vega just prove to us just how important rankings really are?

That is a more realistic ranking. Carthage hasn't really faced maybe one elite team this year. Probably four decent ones. Henderson , Gilmer, Marshall, and Hertiage. Lampasas hasn't faced anyone of note from what most can tell.
