GOTW: Jacksboro at Nocona

Our Dr Pepper Game of the Week matches up two of the best and most surprising teams in Texoma: Nocona & Jacksboro.

The level of surprise for each District 5-2A, Div. II teams is a bit different however. Nocona is off to the program's best start in nearly 50 years at 8-0. At the beginning of the season, the vibe around Texoma was for Nocona to compete for a playoff spot. Undefeated, a win over a Holliday and a shot at a district championship is a different story.

As surprising Nocona's run is, Jacksboro's ride to a 7-1 record is much more unexpected. The Tigers are coming off a back-to-back 2-8 seasons, without a district win either year.

Both teams credit coming together at the right time and strong senior leadership as keys to their combined 15-1 record.

Newschannel 6 will have coverage of our Game of the Week each Tuesday & Thursday at 6 p.m. & 10 p.m. and Friday at 6 p.m. Then, watch the highlights first at 10:30 p.m. On the Friday Night High School Football Update.
