UPDATE: Mildred beat Oak Cliff Life last week, 51-6, in its most complete game in weeks … Scurry-Rosser topped Millsap last week, 47-14 … Mildred won last year’s meeting, 83-0, on the way to a state finals appearance … Mildred is 4-0 on the road ... the Eagles can force a three-way tie for first, but must win by 15 to claim the top seed from 6-2A DII; anything less and the Eagles are third … Sterling is 114 yards from another 1,000-yard season … the Wildcats might be the surprise team in the state, not just the region or Class 2A … Scurry-Rosser was 5-5 last year and is having its finest season 1993, when it went 11-1 and beat Mildred, 42-0, in non-district … Snell threw for 276 yards and 3 TDs in a 53-9 win over Rice … Blanton had 7 catches for 131 yards and 2 TDs in that game.
