Talk about a doozy of a weekend. First, the Game of the Week lives up to all the hype on Thursday. Then a pair of southern showdowns in the Weekend Watch go down to the wire and a two-step of ranked Texas teams go down. It's enough to send the Rivals100 into a serious re-molding, all before the later rounds of state playoffs kick off. Here's how everything shook out:
• No. 75 Franklinton (La.) 35, No. 42 Salmen (La.) 28: Somehow, Franklinton overcame as 15-point second-half deficit against a higher-ranked opponent in a massive in-state showdown to edge ahead at the wire. And the game featured a redemption story, too: Wide receiver Vincent Wilson bounced back from a handful of costly drops early in the game to catch the game-winning touchdown late in the fourth.
