Playoff Implications on the Line for Week 9 of Texas High School Football


SAN ANGELO, TX – Week 9 of Texas High School Football is here which means teams are battling for playoff spots.

San Angelo Central vs. Odessa Permian (-7) - The Central Bobcats had the week off last Friday due to a bye before the difficult part of their season. With two wins in the district season already (Thanks to a Frenship forfeit) the Bobcats are looking to steal one more to secure their postseason spot. With their last win over the Midland Bulldogs, the Bobcats are feeling very confident in tonight's matchup vs Odessa Permian due to Mojo running the exact if not a very similar triple-option offense as Midland. None the less the Permian Panthers will not be an easy victory as they are favored by seven. COVER1 Scorebook: O/U 67
