Rudder still fighting for playoff spot

By  | 

BRYAN, Texas -- The Rudder football team will face Huntsville Friday night in the final regular season game for both teams. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 P.M. at Bowers Stadium on the Sam Houston State campus.

The Rangers need to beat Huntsville and Katy Paetow to beat Lamar Consolidated to make the playoffs for the first time in program history. Rudder will be facing a Huntsville team that is undefeated in district play and can claim an outright district championship with a win tomorrow night. Rudder head coach Greg Morgan said, "Their defense is outstanding. I think most of their identity comes from their defense but if you look at them offensively they have weapons at wide receiver and at quarterback. They have been putting up a lot of points."

Huntsville is averaging 47.5 points per game in district play this season.
