1

Brooks (1-0) at Hartselle (0-1)

Where: J.P. Cain Stadium

Hartselle enters the game coming off a 45-14 loss to 7A Austin to open the season. The Tigers will be looking to get the offense on track in game two, as they were held to 222 yards in their week zero loss. 

Brooks opened the season with a 69-38 win over Lauderdale County.

Hartselle defeated Brooks 34-18 last season.
