#2 Madison Central (1-1) at #1 Brandon (2-0)
The state championship rematch between these two heavyweight schools was arguably the game of the season in just week 3 of the year.
The Bulldogs were out for revenge after suffering a championship defeat to Madison Central just 9 months ago, revenge that would ultimately taste so sweet.
After a scoreless first quarter, Madison Central would notch the first points of the ball game midway through the second quarter and looked to be in control of the contest.
In what was set to be a defensive slugfest, the Bulldogs would show their teeth, scoring 28 unanswered points to send the Jaguars back to the jungle with the final score of 28-7.
Madison Central will host the Northwest Rankin Cougars next week and the Bulldogs will travel to Clinton to take on the Arrows on Friday.
