Lake Dallas at Wichita Falls Rider

When: 7 p.m.

Where: Memorial Stadium

Records: Lake Dallas (4-1, 1-1 district), Wichita Falls Rider (4-1, 2-0)

What’s on the line: Lake Dallas is in the middle of a brutal three-game stretch in District 5-4A play after losing to Trophy Club Nelson last week. Now they travel to face 2012 state semifinalist Wichita Falls Rider. The Falcons will have to play the Raiders without receiver Josh Jackson after the Iowa pledge fractured his foot last week, leaving Lake Dallas looking to make up for his 485 receiving yards and nine scores.

Dallas Bishop Dunne at Liberty Christian

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Warrior Stadium

Records: Dallas Bishop Dunne (4-2, 1-1), Liberty Christian (3-2, 0-1)

What’s on the line: The Liberty Warriors are hoping to avoid an 0-2 start in TAPPS I-1 and will have to beat a solid Dallas Bishop Dunne team. The one-two punch of quarterback Colby Moore and running back JonAaron Howell has been a formidable running duo all season for the Warriors, as the two have combined for 1,010 rushing yards and nine touchdowns despite Moore missing the season opener with an injury.

Frisco Lone Star at Aubrey

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Chaparral Stadium

Records: Frisco Lone Star (5-1), Aubrey (1-5)

What’s on the line: These teams enter District 10-3A play from contrasting positions. Frisco Lone Star is trying to rebound from its first loss of the season, handed down by Sanger. Aubrey is trying to turn things around when it matters the most. Aubrey’s only win of the season came Sept. 6 against Anna. Since then, the Chaps have dropped four consecutive contests.

Krum at Bridgeport

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Bull Memorial Stadium

Records: Krum (2-4), Bridgeport (0-6)

What’s on the line: With the way Bridgeport has played this season, Krum could make huge strides toward a playoff berth with a win over the Bulls in a District 9-3A opener. Krum has struggled tremendously this season, but since four of the district’s five teams will make the season, defeating the winless Bulls could give the Bobcats a much-needed win and an edge in the playoff race.

Pilot Point at Ponder

When: 7:30 p.m.

Where: Ponder Field

Records: Pilot Point (4-2, 2-0), Ponder (2-4, 0-2)

What’s on the line: Ponder surrendered 279 yards on the ground to Bowie in last week’s 35-24 loss. If the Lions are going to get into the playoff picture, they will need to shore up their run defense. The Pilot Point Bearcats boast a more-than-capable runner in Tristan Jurecka. The Bearcats also will threaten with the passing game, amassing 252 yards in their 40-14 win over Boyd last week, as they look to extend their winning streak to four games.
