5A Division I
Euless Trinity eliminated Allen for the second consecutive year by a 28-21 final. The Allen QB was stopped at the one yard line on fourth-and-goal in a game that may end up being the best in the playoffs this year. Elsewhere in Region I, Southlake Carroll blew out Cedar Hill 40-7 in what may have been their most impressive performance of the year. The result impressed the computer and so Trinity's chances of winning the region didn't go up as much as we would have thought before the weekend.
In Region II, Dallas Skyline won their showdown with DeSoto 41-31 and in so doing jumped all the way to #4 in the EWP ratings as well as the power rating. With what now rates as the #1 defense in the state, the Raiders have become the favorite to take home the Division I title helped in part by an easier road to the semifinals than the Region I teams.
In Region IV, San Antonio Madison will face Laredo United in one regional semifinal while Harlingen, still the regional favorite despite nearly being shocked by Del Rio, will take on San Antonio Warren in the other.
5A Division II
4A Division I
4A Division II
Aledo easily took care of business against Mansfield Summit 59-23 in what was supposed to be a competitive matchup. They are now one week away from a chance at a rematch against Stephenville in the regional final, where they hope to avenge a 48-47 Week Zero loss.
Manvel handled Houston Yates as expected and projects to meet La Marque in a district rematch in the Region III final after Brenham was shocked last weeken by Beaumont Ozen. Manvel won the first meeting 29-14.
3A Division I
3A Division II
After Coldspring-Oakhurst struggled for the second straight week, Gilmer is now a clear favorite to win the title. Wimberley is still the favorite in Region IV and third most likely to win state and they should meet the most hated team in the state, Devine, in the regional final.
2A Division I
Muleshoe upset previous favorite Godley 43-27 this week, so the role of overall favorite has now shifted to New Boston. Crockett is predicted to win Region III while Hempstead is the Region IV favorite.
2A Division II
Refugio has lost the favorite position to Corsicana Mildred. Refugio's biggest Region IV challenge should still be in the regional final against Sonora or East Bernard although Poth has an outside chance of an upset this week. Region III should be won by Franklin or Arp.
1A Division I
This bracket is the most wide open in the state as five teams remain with over a 10% chance to win it all. Pre-tournament favorite Mason remain in that position but have a competitive matchup with Ganado this week. Clarksville, Garrison, and Albany round out the five favorites.
