Just the facts

  • San Augustine can finish its season undefeated for the first time since 1970 with a victory.
  • KJ Davis is averaging 136.2 rushing yards per game and has rushed for more than 200 yards three times this season.
  • San Augustine has already clinched the district championship after its victory against Joaquin this past week.
  • Even with a loss, Carlisle is squarely in the playoffs after defeating Shelbyville in Week 10.
  • Carlisle has a potent offense, putting up 45 points per game.
  • The teams met twice in 2016, with Carlisle getting the last laugh in the playoffs, 28-14.
  • San Augustine won the regular season matchup in 2016, 42-28.
San Augustine's KJ Davis has been the Wolves' primary source of offense this season.

Key matchup: KJ Davis and the San Augustine rushing attack against the Carlisle defense. Davis is coming off a monster game against Joaquin in which he rushed for 207 yards and four touchdowns. He has been a danger to defenses all season, having amassed more than 1,200 yards thus far.

Carlisle has four players with at least 14 tackles for loss, so getting to the backfield is nothing new to the Indians. However, outside of Joaquin, the Indians haven't faced a team with the running prowess of San Augustine.

Carlisle gave up 294 yards to Joaquin in a 26-23 loss. It can't afford to do so against San Augustine is it wants to finish among the top three in the district.

Unless the Indians can contain Davis, San Augustine is looking at 10-0.

Don't be surprised if: Gerald Turner ends up with a few touchdowns. He has been the go-to guy for Carlisle when it comes to scoring, with 15 total touchdowns. He gets it done both as a receiver and a runner, with 696 total yards.

If Carlisle finds itself in a position where it needs to score, don't be surprised to see Turner get some touches. If Carlisle puts up plenty of points, he will be in the mix.
