    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    17 consecutive wins. That's what the Lobos can scream from the top of Rose Stadium, as Longview defeated their rivals to the west following a 46-20 over Tyler Legacy. Heading into the contest, many predictions saw the Red Raiders snapping the 19-year streak..and it looked as if it was going to be proven true at the start of the contest. The Red Raiders jumped out to a 10-0 lead thanks to an onside kick recovery to open the game, followed by a Red Raider fumble recovery inside the Lobo 20-yard line. With the way Legacy had scored the first two weeks and Longview's lack of an offense to begin the 2021 season, no one could be faulted for feeling as if they knew how the contest was going to end. This year's Lobos had other ideas. After a touchdown reception from Taylor Tatum, his first as a Lobo, from Jordan Allen, the Longview offense got going. Taylor Tatum rushed in to give Longview the lead, before Joshua Thomas took over at quarterback for the Lobos. With Thomas under center, only one drive ended without the Lobos putting up points, one that saw one of Longview's running back fumble the ball inside the 5-yard line. No doubt the Lobos still have things to work on, such as penalties and turnovers. But overall, it was a huge improvement for this year's group after posting just 21 points through the first two games. The Lobos' 17th win in a row over the Red Raiders is the second longest in school history, second only to their 19-game winning streak over the Marshall. The win also marked Longview's 9th consecutive over Tyler Legacy at Rose Stadium dating back to 2002. Overall, John King improved to 23-1 at Rose Stadium as head coach of Longview. Next up for the Lobos, is a date with a 3-time defending state champion in the Bryant Hornets. The Hornets have won 32 consecutive games dating back to a 34-28 loss at North Little Rock in 2018. In those 32 games, the Hornets have had just one contest settled within one score, a 44-40 victory over Cedar Hill Trinity Christian (out of Texas) last season at Bryant. The 3 and a half hour drive for the Hornets, however, will no doubt be one of the longest drives they've had in recent years (at the very least). For the two programs, it will be the first meeting between them. But they do have at least one connection as the last time Longview faced a team from the state of Arkansas, they faced the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats, a district mate of the Hornets. Each of the last three seasons, Bryant has defeated NLR in the state championship game. Last season's 27-17 final was the closest of those three contests. The Lobos faced NLR back in 2012, a week after losing their starting senior quarterback which forced them to put a sophomore in for the rest of the way in Desmond Chumley. Longview's offense did enough while the defense and special teams brought things home in a 30-14 victory. Friday's contest will be the 6th overall meeting between Longview and the State of Arkansas. The Lobos are 5-0 in the previous match ups. Longview faced off against El Dorado back in 1934 & 1935, winning both, while the Lobos knocked off Arkansas High in dominating fashion in a home and home series back in 1954 & 1955 before the 2012 match up against North Little Rock. The Lobos also return home, where they have won three straight at Lobo Stadium, and 24 of their last 25 contests. Head coach John King is 78-6 all-time at Lobo Stadium since becoming head coach in 2004. Despite their 32-game winning streak, only 9 of those games have been true road contests. This will be their first true road game of the year, after meeting Benton at a neutral field to start the season.

    Bryant has never traveled out of state, it will be tough for them to win in Longview.

      Preview added.

      32-game winning streak on the line for the Hornets. 3 consecutive state titles for them.

      No doubt will be a huge test for us. Won't lie that I feel a little better after reviewing those scores and teams they've played in the last 32 games.
