The playoffs will be more clear with Week 9 here, and expect some teams to punch their tickets into the postseason by Friday night.

Great bounce back in Week 8; Tarrant County-area picks went 28-6.

This week, Thursday features Keller Fossil Ridge and Keller Central, both sitting at 2-1 in District 3-6A.

Mansfield plays Arlington Sam Houston on Thursday. Can Oklahoma commit Kennedy Brooks make it 22-straight 100-yard rushing games and his 17th of 200 or more in that span?

Friday is highlighted by another edition of the Colleyville Heritage-Grapevine series. Heritage is looking to remain unbeaten in District 8-5A while Grapevine wants to rebound after a loss.

Mansfield Lake Ridge and Legacy, both 3-1 in 10-5A, duel it out at Newsom Stadium.
