GAME OF THE WEEK THIS FRIDAY TAKES FNN TO TALLADEGA COUNTY FOR A KEY 4A-REGION 4 BATTLE
It's another schedule change for Week 4 of the season as early wins in Region 4 have placed Talladega and Lincoln on a collision course for mid-season control of the region standings along with Handley.
"With Childersburg dropping their second region game of the season, it just made more sense for us to cover the game between Lincoln and Talladega," stated FNN's Jim Jacobs.
"We were originally scheduled to make the trip to John Cox Memorial Stadium for the game between the Tigers and Handley, but the game at Lincoln seems at this point in the year to have a little more meaning in who might win Region 4, and FNN's policy has always been to give our viewers the best possible match-up on Friday nights."
"This is one of the reasons we don't like releasing a pre-season schedule because we know these things are going to happen, and we hate not going to a place when they've already extended an invitation like Coach Beverly did at Childersburg. Hopefully, the Tigers will get back into the picture and we can pick them up later this season. Their game with Handley is big for them for sure. They need to get the win."
Both the Tigers and Golden Bears are undefeated in region play. Talladega is coming off a huge home win over Elmore County, while Lincoln went on the road and doubled up Leeds.
Talladega is 3-1 after four weeks of play. That's the best start for the Tigers in who knows when. Lincoln is 2-1 and seems to be turning the corner under Matt Zedaker. The Tigers won the meeting between these two last year, 37-34 and they lead the all-time series 11-5-0.
Join FNN from Keith Howard Memorial Stadium starting at 6:30 PM for the Professional Apothecary Durable Medical Equipment Countdown To Kickoff. Grady Sapp, Coach Eddie Bullock and Danielle Moss with have the call starting at 7 PM. You can watch the game FREE across FNN's multiple social platforms including here on FNN 24/7 by CLICKING HERE.
