Our Week 8 Game of the Week Will Come From South Talladega County As The Winterboro Bulldogs Try To Stop The Unbeaten Wadley Bulldogs In 1A-Region 4 Action
Once again, The Wadley Bulldogs are the "class" of the region, and why shouldn't they be. In their six wins this season, the Dogs have given up no more than 7 points in any of them, while scoring no less than 40+ PPG.
Meanwhile, what looked like a potential showdown just two weeks ago for Winterboro has taken a nose dive over the last two Fridays as the Bulldogs in blue have dropped two in a row on the road, losting a heartbreaker to TCC 25-9 then dropping another region game at Ragland 27-6 this past Friday.
This will be the first visit to Winterboro for the FNN Game of the Week in our 6th season of streaming high school games from across East Central Alabama. Watch live here at fnnnetwork.com, on Facebook Live or with the FNN App for iOS and Android users. Pregame starts at 6:30 PM with Kickoff set for 7 o'clock.
Now you can enjoy FNN on your mobile device with our new app. It's designed to work with both iOS and Android devices, so no matter what you carry, with the FNN app on your phone or tablet, we're just a tap away. Download it FREE today at the Apple App Store or on Google Play.
Piedmont Takes Back #1 Spot In Class 3A While Saks Breaks Into The Top 10 In Class 4A
The two-time defending state champs in 3A retook their rightful spot atop the state's high school football poll this week following Mobile Christian's loss last Friday. The Bulldogs received 25 of the 28 first place votes. The FNN viewing area is top heavy in 3A with Randolph County rising to #3, Ohatchee (who plays at Piedmont this Friday) is in at #4 and Weaver (who plays at Randolph County Friday) is in at #8.
Unbeaten Oxford stays near the top in 6A, coming in at #2 and receiving three first place votes. The Jackets host across-the-river rival Pell City at Lamar Field Friday.
In 5A, Alexandria (5), Etowah (6) and Sylacauga (10) represent the area. Both Alexandria and Sylacauga have big games Friday. The Valley Cubs travel to Guntersville while the Aggies face Central-Clay County at Volunteer Stadium.
The latest 4A rankings find the Saks Wildcats finally getting some respect for their unbeaten season so far in at #10. Leeds, who plays at #9 Tallassee Friday stays at #4 while Hokes Bluff is ranked 8th. Munford is still on the outside of the Top 10.
Fyffe (1), Lanett (2) and LeFayette (4) continue to dominate the top of Class 2A. Vincent and Sand Rock both sit just outside the Top 10.
In 1A, it's all Maplesville (all 30 votes) at #1. We'll see #5 Wadley Friday night at Winterboro, who sits just outside the Top 10 along with Talladega County Central and Spring Garden.
