LAGRANGE, GA (WTVM) - They're two teams with legit state title dreams that have rolled through the first three games on their schedules with blowout wins -- and now they collide in the home stadium they share.
Callaway at Troup is the Sports Overtime Game of the Week.
The Callaway Cavaliers have played up in classification all season. They opened with a win over a ranked Alabama 6A team in Opelika, followed by a shutout of 4A LaGrange, capped with a 50-0 road victory over 5A Cross Keys. That has the Cavaliers in the number two spot in the Georgia 2A state rankings as they prepare for what will likely be their biggest challenge of the regular season.
The Troup Tigers have been even more dominant, winning their three games by margins of 32, 33, and 47 points. The biggest margin of victory came on the road against Class 5A Harris County last Friday night.
The Tigers are ranked 6th in Class 4A, approaching their final tuneup before opening play in Region 5 schedule, and they know it will be a challenge.
Things kick off Friday night at 7:30 pm ET at Callaway Stadium in LaGrange.
