RTS Feature Games: Week 6 Schedule


This week’s schedule will find us in Tennessee and Texas along with side trips to Mississippi and Oklahoma. We’ll take in everything from high school to major college football as we hit the road for another weekend of action.

Denton (TX) Broncos at Ryan (Denton, TX) Raiders
Denton, Texas
8:00 p.m. ET Friday, September 23, 2016

This big Texas clash features a couple of 4-0 teams in a battle for hometown bragging rights. Denton is on a  two-year playoff run, but they haven’t been in Ryan’s district since 2011 when the Raiders beat them 45-7. And Ryan is still the indisputable powerhouse in this town after a 13-1 finish in 2015. Both are ranked in the Top 100 in Texas, but it could be a tall order for the Broncos to knock off the Top 10 Raiders.

TCU Horned Frogs at SMU Mustangs
Dallas, Texas
8:00 p.m. ET Friday, September 23, 2016

TCU has dominated this old SWC rivalry under Gary Patterson ringing up a 12-2 record since Patterson took over the Horned Frogs program in late 2001. There’s no reason to believe it will be any different this year.

Georgia Bulldogs at Ole Miss Rebels
Oxford, Mississippi
12 noon ET Friday, September 24, 2016

These two old SEC foes played every year from 1966-2002, but expansion in the SEC has led to fewer meetings since then. This will be just the fifth meeting since that 2002 season, and Georgia has a 10-game winning streak in the series. With a new head coach at the helm in Kirby Smart, the Bulldogs could be challenged to keep that streak alive against a Hugh Freeze-coached team that built leads of more than 20 points against both Alabama and Florida State. True, the Rebels ultimately lost both games, but Georgia has struggled to beat the likes of Nicholls. A deep hole for the Bulldogs on the road might be too much to overcome.

Southern Nazarene Crimson Storm at Southeastern Oklahoma Savage Storm
Durant, Oklahoma
3:00 p.m. ET Friday, September 24, 2016

Storms are colliding in this one with the Savage Storm hosting the Crimson Storm. But while the Savage Storm has looked extremely tough in building a 2-1 record with only a narrow loss at Henderson State, the Crimson Storm has mostly fizzled out in three straight losses to open the season. The Crimson Storm has been outscored 132-13 so it could be a long afternoon in Durant, Oklahoma, for the visitors.

Bowling Green Falcons at Memphis Tigers
Memphis, Tennessee
8:00 p.m. ET Friday, September 24, 2016

The loss of head coach Justin Fuente was expected to slow the Memphis Tigers down a bit, but two games into the 2016 season, the team hasn’t missed a beat under first-time head coach Mike Norvell. They’re 2-0 coming off a 43-7 win at Kansas. Bowling Green is going through a transition of its own under new head coach Mike Jinks, but it hasn’t gone nearly as well. The Falcons were destroyed 77-10 at Ohio State in the season opener, and after surviving a scare at home against FCS opponent North Dakota in a 27-26 win, the Falcons were thrashed by Middle Tennessee 41-21 in a game played at Bowling Green.
