RHS (1-0) hosts Deshler (0-1)

This is one of the most storied rivalries in northwest Alabama. The two Tigers have met each other 94 times on the gridiron, and the series is as even as it gets – 45-45-4. The 2020 game was not played because of COVID-19. It was the first interruption of the series since 1988.

Prior to this past year, the two teams went in to overtime two years in a row, with the Golden Tigers coming out on top both times.

Russellville won its season opener this past week beating Decatur 27-15. Deshler lost to Muscle Shoals 52-14.

CANCELLED: THS (1-0) travels to Phillips (0-1)
