The matchup of East Texas powers pits the top two teams in the state in Class 4A according to the AP rankings with the defending state champion Bulldogs taking the top spot and the host Buckeyes at No. 2.
In last year’s matchup, Carthage used a 21-3 fast quarter to defeat the Buckeyes last year at Bulldog Stadium. As both teams head to Jeff Traylor Stadium on Saturday night, head coach Matt Turner will have his Buckeyes looking to exact some revenge.
The teams face off on Saturday night at 7 p.m. CST in Gilmer.
