FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
17 consecutive wins. That's what the Lobos can scream from the top of Rose Stadium, as Longview defeated their rivals to the west following a 46-20 over Tyler Legacy. Heading into the contest, many predictions saw the Red Raiders snapping the 19-year streak..and it looked as if it was going to be proven true at the start of the contest. The Red Raiders jumped out to a 10-0 lead thanks to an onside kick recovery to open the game, followed by a Red Raider fumble recovery inside the Lobo 20-yard line. With the way Legacy had scored the first two weeks and Longview's lack of an offense to begin the 2021 season, no one could be faulted for feeling as if they knew how the contest was going to end. This year's Lobos had other ideas. After a touchdown reception from Taylor Tatum, his first as a Lobo, from Jordan Allen, the Longview offense got going. Taylor Tatum rushed in to give Longview the lead, before Joshua Thomas took over at quarterback for the Lobos. With Thomas under center, only one drive ended without the Lobos putting up points, one that saw one of Longview's running back fumble the ball inside the 5-yard line. No doubt the Lobos still have things to work on, such as penalties and turnovers. But overall, it was a huge improvement for this year's group after posting just 21 points through the first two games. The Lobos' 17th win in a row over the Red Raiders is the second longest in school history, second only to their 19-game winning streak over the Marshall. The win also marked Longview's 9th consecutive over Tyler Legacy at Rose Stadium dating back to 2002. Overall, John King improved to 23-1 at Rose Stadium as head coach of Longview. Next up for the Lobos, is a date with a 3-time defending state champion in the Bryant Hornets. The Hornets have won 32 consecutive games dating back to a 34-28 loss at North Little Rock in 2018. In those 32 games, the Hornets have had just one contest settled within one score, a 44-40 victory over Cedar Hill Trinity Christian (out of Texas) last season at Bryant. The 3 and a half hour drive for the Hornets, however, will no doubt be one of the longest drives they've had in recent years (at the very least). For the two programs, it will be the first meeting between them. But they do have at least one connection as the last time Longview faced a team from the state of Arkansas, they faced the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats, a district mate of the Hornets. Each of the last three seasons, Bryant has defeated NLR in the state championship game. Last season's 27-17 final was the closest of those three contests. The Lobos faced NLR back in 2012, a week after losing their starting senior quarterback which forced them to put a sophomore in for the rest of the way in Desmond Chumley. Longview's offense did enough while the defense and special teams brought things home in a 30-14 victory. Friday's contest will be the 6th overall meeting between Longview and the State of Arkansas. The Lobos are 5-0 in the previous match ups. Longview faced off against El Dorado back in 1934 & 1935, winning both, while the Lobos knocked off Arkansas High in dominating fashion in a home and home series back in 1954 & 1955 before the 2012 match up against North Little Rock. The Lobos also return home, where they have won three straight at Lobo Stadium, and 24 of their last 25 contests. Head coach John King is 78-6 all-time at Lobo Stadium since becoming head coach in 2004. Despite their 32-game winning streak, only 9 of those games have been true road contests. This will be their first true road game of the year, after meeting Benton at a neutral field to start the season.

From an outsider I was at the game Bryant would win on a neutral field! Lot of holding calls against them and I know they hold but Longview doesnt hold? Did yall Lobo fans see your receiver throw the

Yes, apparently it's a city in Panola and Rusk counties. According to source, the population was 1,385 during the 2010 census.    But seriously: nothing official at this point. We'll see wha

They're broadcasting away games as well, correct. HP also has their own broadcast so when we play them, there should be plenty of ways to stream. LongviewGameday is a damn good product. High

Bryant has around 2000 students.........So, enrollment size should not be an excuse for either side........Which I like

Agree.  We are basically the same size.  This is a solid program.  They remind me so much of Carthage in the offense they run.  They are so balanced and patient.  They will take whatever you give them and just work down the field.  Make no mistake, they have some very solid athletes on both sides of the ball.  It is really hard to gauge with never have seen them in person before, but I could easily say this could be one of the best 1-2 teams we will play this year.  Going to be a tall order.  Lobos have got to have a good week at practice and start off strong.  These guys are going to go at us from the jump.

Absolutely agree Kingwolf. This is going to be an extremely difficult test. Glad this team is getting it.

A lot depends on some mitigating factors...  like how clean of a game we play. If we can cut down the penalties and the unforced errors, we've got more than a chance. Also have a few kids banged up. We'll have to see who's able to go on Friday night, and who still needs time to recover. 

Bryant's as big a test as we've had thus far (second only to Ryan) but they're beatable. I think we're 10 points better, but it's going to require maximum effort and solid execution. Bryant's going to move the ball well. Their defense is going to make plays. 

This is a heavyweight bout, and we're going to have to come in swinging and prepared to go the distance.

Big thing will be how we came out of the game injury wise against Legacy for sure. We had several guys go down, and it sounds like we had a few that weren't even able to go last night.

Those penalties have got to stop though. It's full stop going to cost us later in the year.

Turnovers, the same.

Yep. I'm far more sympathetic to a d-line who jumps offside, or maybe a young DB who gets a little handsy trying to break up a deep pass. Hey, can't fault a guy for being aggressive.

But it's inexcusable for o-line. You literally know the count. It's pure lack of focus. Inexcusable.

In this 3 year streak have they played any oos games outside of state? Or all less talented Arkansas teams? Until we lose a oos game on the field and not a forfeit to evangel , I believe in the bos to find  away to win this oos game as well Bos by ten  with late fg to lock the dub 💪

This was a very interesting opponent. Longview never scared of a challenge. I like seeing Longview in these big boy matchups. I didn’t realize they were that good until the preview. I figured this was a fill in game because of Covid.

West Brook pulled out after we scheduled them in our week 4 spot last year. So King went looking for a tough opponent. 3 consecutive state titles and 32 consecutive wins. It'll be a huge test for sure. Glad we got them at home.

Several years ago LV hosted North Little Rock High School which was one of the best teams, overall, in Arkansas.  NLR had a running back that went on to sign with Alabama.  I think that he may have barely rushed for around 100 yards.  I attended that game which LV won.  The difference in the game I believe was that NLR had never played against a team with the overall team speed, especially on defense, that LV possessed.  This year's edition of the Lobos is not the same caliber of the Lobos then but this is probably going to be a decent game.  Don't be surprised about the outcome of this game either way.  Bryant is an excellent program and a state champion the last two seasons I believe.  Don't get too overconfident because of what you think you know or actually don't know about Arkansas football.  A team came out of Little Rock a few years ago and beat Highland Park in Dallas stopping their long home winning streak.  Just saying...

Honestly, I disagree about the same caliber team comment. We didn’t have our starting QB that year, IF we go with the obvious choice the rest of the way then we will have a guy who can make as many plays as Bivins did.

We were awful on offense that night against NLR. A punt return, a safety and a blocked punt for a TD saved the day. I remember the NLR coach in the paper the next day saying they should’ve beaten us.

Our defense is very good this year as well. Just very, very young. 

We’ve just got to cut down on penalties and turnovers no doubt.

Again though, Bryant is an excellent program and excellent test for our team. I’m glad we have it.
