WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Our Dr Pepper Game of the Week for Week 6 is one that needs very little introduction. The Rider Raiders will be the designated home team as they face their cross-town rivals the Wichita Falls HS Coyotes Friday night at 7 p.m. at Memorial Stadium!

The teams split their past two meetings, with the Coyotes winning 50-36 in 2014 and the Raiders taking a closer-than-expected 24-21 win a year ago. Before that, Rider had won the past four games in the series.

It will be the first game in the rivalry for first-year WFHS head coach Paul Sharr, while Rider coach Marc Bindel has seen it from all sides. He played for Old High, graduating from there in 1999, then was an assistant at Rider from 2009 to 2013 before being head coach the past two meetings.

Check back all week to hear from both teams and tune in to the Final Score with QnA on Friday night at 11 p.m. on the CW Texoma for complete highlights from the big game!
