Matt Stepp’s 10 thoughts from the Texas high school football Week 7

DCTF'S HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL INSIDER LOOKS BACK ON THE LAST WEEKEND ON THE GRIDIRON.

No home field? No problem! Mission Veterans Memorial has yet to play a home game this season. Why, you ask? Mission CISD has been delayed in a remodeling of Tom Landry Stadium. Rainy weather and construction material delays from Houston due to Hurricane Harvey set things back significantly forcing the Patriots to hit the road.  They’ve played home games in…

Five questions that have to be asked after college football Week 7

Could UTSA/North Texas have been any better and what on earth happened to Houston?

Could UTSA/North Texas have been any better? Saturday’s 29-26 win over the Roadrunners might’ve just been the biggest ever for the Mean Green inside Apogee Stadium and it didn’t look like it was going to happen.
