It was another 17-7 week - the second time in three weeks - with the overall record at 99-41 (.707). To get to the 75 percent prediction record, I have to go 95-23, which is a 80.5 percent clip over the last 118 games to pick.
Below are the 23 other games of note that I'll try my best at predicting a winner for in addition to the deeper-dive game: Birdville with an easy win over Carrollton Creekview.
#9 Frisco Independence (5-0, 2-0) vs. #1 Frisco Lone Star (5-0, 2-0)
Offense. Offense. Offense. Both teams average more than 54 points a game, hold teams to a combine 20 points a game and have each outscored opponents by more than 220 points. I feel sorry for the scoreboard operator at the Ford Center for this one. Lone Star's battled Highland Park this year and won - on the road. Independence's toughest opponent has been Frisco Memorial. Give me Lone Star.
We're three weeks down in the Texas high school football regular season. There have already been some homecomings. Some teams are already entering district play and others are on their bye week.
