Man is this a tough one for me.

I like Silsbee's defense to create opportunities.   That may very well be the difference in what I believe will be a shoot out.  I'm gonna go with a high scoring affair since it's indoors and everything will be on the table.

Fireworks & Silsbee attempts a 2 point conversion somewhere.

Gimme the Tigers 39-35, 

Because well I'm a Homer at heart.

P.S.

It's been awhile to my Carthage friends... fate seems to bring us together.

I hope you are right. Both still have some hurdles to clear, but I think we can both do it!

Thought a write up on this game might be fun, so here we go.

Silsbee (13-0)

Points For: 595 (45.8 ppg)

Points Against: 178 (13.7 ppg)

Combined Record of Opponents: 60-84

Questionable Games: Nederland (2-8 record) won by 8 Week 2*; Jasper (7-4 record) won by 3 Week 10*

Cuero (12-1)

Points For: 646 (49.7 ppg)

Points Against: 162 (12.5 ppg)

Combined Record of Opponents: 75-75

Questionable Games: Calallen (13-0 record) lost by 16 Week 3*; Salado (3-8 record) won by 6 in overtime Week 11 (Round 1 Playoffs)*

Common Opponents:

Smithville – Silsbee won 34-0 Week 12 (Round 2 Playoffs)*; Cuero won 61-16 Week 9*

Hamshire-Fannett – Silsbee won 35-28 Week 8*; Cuero won 39-14 Week 13 (Round 3 Playoffs)*

*For reference I count the first week of the season as week 0.

Season Summary:

Silsbee has pretty much been rolling all season with only two close games.  Cuero took the early season loss to a very good Calallen team (4A Div 1) that is playing for their respective region championship this week.

Playoff Summary:

Silsbee has yet to be tested in the playoffs blowing out Columbia, Smithville, and Madisonville.  Cuero had what appears to be a wake-up call in round 1 of the playoffs by barely getting past a 3-8 Salado team in overtime as they have come alive since blowing out Sealy and Hamshire-Fannett.

Game Thoughts:

Looks like this should be a great game on paper.  Both teams have very good offenses that will put up points, but also have defenses that will make stops.  Likely the team that can execute with the fewest mistakes will win.  Some match ups allow for some mistakes and you will be fine, but this game wont.  Fun side note, Calpreps has Cuero winning 34-31.  I can agree with a score in that range for the teams, but which one has more at the end of the game seems to be a complete toss up.

Not a fan of either team, just a fan of TX HS FB!

Hard to really tell how good either team is region 3 is a really weak region historically except a few teams and seems to be even worse this year since the normal good teams didn't even make it out of the first round and moving carthage to region 2 only region worse is prolly region 4

Wow.  Don't miss this much.

In that last rankings by DCTF, 3 of the top 5 and 6 of the top 15 are in Region III.
