The Dr Pepper Game of the Week for week 8 is already garnering state-wide attention all across Texas.
Fox Sports Southwest will be in town on Friday night for their weekly High School Road Trip to broadcast this big time matchup! The Rider Raiders (6-1) will host the Denton Guyer Wildcats (5-2) who are ranked #6 in the state in the latest AP poll that was released this week.
Both teams are undefeated in district play so far this season, so the winner of this game could likely decide who will take home this year's district championship. Denton Guyer beat Rider last year at home, 21-10, but the Raiders will be looking for revenge this Friday night at Memorial Stadium.
The Raiders plan on leaning heavily on their offense to control the pace and tempo of this game, and hope their home crowd will give them an added advantage to help them pull off the upset.
