BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -- The A&M Consolidated Tigers will kick off district play Friday night at 7:30pm against defending champion Huntsville at Bowers Stadium on the Sam Houston State University campus.
These two teams decided the title a year ago with the Hornets winning the crown thanks to a 27-7 win at Tiger Field.
Tomorrow night's outcome could also determine the championship and it's a showdown of two top 10 teams with the Tigers (3-0) ranked 5th and the Hornets (2-1) ranked 6th in Class 5A Division II.
"That's one thing that we've talked about, our goal is to win that district championship," said A&M Consolidated head football coach Lee Fedora. "It's been a long time since A&M Consolidated has won a district championship and those guys have got that focus and they know to win a district championship the best way to do it is to go undefeated in district. It starts out being 1-0 and this is our big challenge," concluded Fedora.
The Tigers last undefeated run to claim a district title play came in 2010. Since then they have claimed a share of the district championships in 2012 and most recently in 2015.
