Matchup: With both Elijah Mitchell and Scott Moore nursing injuries, the Bobcats will have to decide how much to play their two offensive stars against E.D White in preparation for a potential playoff run.
Lagniappe: Both teams are currently playoff bound according to their Power Rankings (Erath No. 19 in Class 3A; E.D. White No. 7 in Division III), but Erath has the most to gain with a victory. The Bobcats could potentially reach as high as No. 16 with a win, which would earn them a home game to open the playoffs.
