In a game that just might decide the District 9-2A Division I championship, Friday night's battle between unbeaten Troup (6-0) and No. 7 Tatum (5-1) is the Dairy Queen Game of the Week.

Troup has already equalled last season's win total under first-year coach Dennis Alexander, who ranks fourth all-time in wins by Texas high school football coaches. The Tigers are coming off a 26-22 victory over previously unbeaten Jefferson in the district opener last Friday.

Tatum's only loss on the season was against Class 3A Center, which is off to a 7-0 start. The Eagles edged White Oak, 28-21, last Friday in their league opener.
