Mustangs vs. Tigers a duel of ground troops

Game of the Week: Mustangs vs. Tigers a duel of ground troops

40-5, .888

Overall: 283-72, .797

The Big Country Game of the Week tends to gravitate toward ground-oriented, physical football games, and this week's Sweetwater/Snyder matchup is no exception.

The Game of the Week also tends to gravitate to the area's most difficult game to pick.

Again, no exception here.

Sweetwater (6-1, 2-0 District 2-3A) enters with the better record and hasn't lost since dropping its season opener at Burkburnett.

Snyder (5-2, 1-1) saw a five-game winning streak snapped in a tough 18-14 loss to Wylie last week, but is clearly playing at a higher level than it did during a season-opening loss to Big Spring.

Oddly enough this shapes up as a borderline playoff eliminator for both teams.

If Sweetwater loses here, it will likely have to beat a very good Brownwood team on the road or Wylie at home to reach the playoffs.

If Snyder loses, it must avoid an upset loss to Breckenridge next week, then beat Brownwood to keep its season alive.

The bottom line is, the winner of this game will have a hefty advantage over the loser in the quest for the league's third playoff spot.

Turnovers will decide the outcome here. But it's difficult to pick against Sweetwater, which dismantled a solid Clyde team (24-6) on Sept. 19, and the same Big Spring team (28-7) which beat Snyder.

Pick: Sweetwater by 1
