Thursday Night Lights: September 1

Week 2 is here and there are four games on your Thursday night slate to follow. Keep track of all the action on the Taco Shack Scoreboard.

Hutto Hippos @ Bryan Rudder Rangers – 7:00pm, Merrill Green Stadium (Bryan)
Hutto (1-0) faces another test from the Brazos Valley; this time a former districtmate from 2010-12’s 16-4A in the Rudder Rangers (1-0). Both teams are working on a short week following their Week 1 victories. Hutto won their last matchup in 2011, 40-14.

Stony Point Tigers @ Killeen Ellison Eagles – 7:30pm, Leo Buckley Stadium (Killeen)
Stony Point (0-1) is still searching for its first win following last week’s 14-21 loss to the Killeen Kangaroos; meanwhile, Ellison (1-0) is riding high following their 56-21 drubbing of Leander. Mother Nature handed the Eagles a challenge – preparing for a game on just 4 days’ rest.

Lehman Lobos @ McCallum Knights – 7:30pm, House Park
The Knights (1-0) are fresh off their Taco Shack Bowl victory, while the Lobos (0-1) are trying to shake off a 14-42 loss to Westwood to open their 2016 campaign. Their previous two meetings have both gone to McCallum, although the Lobos took it to overtime in 2014. Roger Wallace and our friends at KBVO will televise this one.

Harker Heights Knights @ McNeil Mavericks – 7:00pm, Kelly Reeves Athletic Complex
Our FanstandATX Thursday Night Game Of The Week features the Knights (1-0) continuing their non-district tour of the Austin area following last Thursday’s 35-6 home win against Elgin, against McNeil (1-0) who looks to build off of last week’s 44-14 win over Austin High. Pregame at 6:45pm, kickoff at 7:00 on Talk 1370 and
