District 2-2A is shaping up to go down to the wire this season with seven teams competing for three playoff spots. Right now, Idalou is sitting where they were predicted to be, undefeated (3-0) in district play. However, someone forgot to tell Coach Gardner's bunch out in Coahoma they are expected to finish in second place, not first. Currently, the Bulldogs are atop the district with a 4-0 district record after last week's thrilling 23-22 win at Forsan. Coahoma and Idalou are set to play Nov. 4 in the season finale.
The 0-8 Big Spring Steers will be back in action Friday night, playing host to a well-rested Abilene Wylie football team. The Bulldogs had a bye this last week, after defeating Sweetwater 20-15 in their last game Oct. 7. Meanwhile, the Steers are coming off of a 28-6 loss in Sweetwater.
Last week offered a possible glimpse into the future of the Steers, with sophomore Devin Roberson playing almost the entire first half at quarterback.
