    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    Rematch. That seems to be the theme of Longview's 2021 playoff run, as for the second straight week the Lobos will meet an opponent they played in the 2020 post season. This team, it's a rematch of not only a 2020 playoff opponent but also a 2021 regular season opponent. For the 3rd time in 11 month, Longview takes on #1 ranked Denton Ryan. The Lobos and Raiders never met before last year's Boxing Day match up, but since have gotten extremely familiar with each other. And for Longview, it hasn't been pretty. The Raiders have controlled both match ups with the Lobos, rolling to two convincing victories. Last season's playoff match up proved to be the closer of the two, as the Raiders took a 13-7 halftime lead before shutting down Longview's offense in the 2nd half and rolling to a four score victory. This season, Longview led 7-6 after the first quarter before a disastrous 2nd quarter completely derailed the Lobos in the season opener in a 40-7 loss. The 33-point loss to open the season is tied for the 3rd worst opening season loss in Longview history. The two teams took massively different paths to reach this point of the season. For Denton Ryan, it's the same as it's been the last couple of seasons, however an early season 14-7 loss to cross town rival Denton Guyer ended a long winning streak for the Raiders. Since though, it's been a 10-game winning streak again for the Raiders. Ryan really was only tested once all season, in a 7-6 win over Frisco Lone Star. The Rangers, in that game, had the ball inside the 15 as time was running out before the Raiders recovered a fumble to win the district championship. Last week, the Raiders pulled out a 28-20 victory over Magnolia West. The Raiders built up a 21-0, and 28-7 lead before the Bulldogs pulled themselves back into the game, but the Raiders were never in danger of losing the game. Longview's road has been much bumpier. Following the opening season loss, the Lobos struggled on offense all year before finding their groove in a quarterback change following the 3rd loss of the season. The 3 regular season losses is the most for Longview since 2012. Since the quarterback change, the Lobos have rolled to their solid victories, including last week's 34-14 win over #10 Lancaster. The two teams return to Mesquite Memorial Stadium, the location of last season's playoff match up. It will be Longview's 16th visit to the Mesquite Memorial, and 7th playoff meeting. The Lobos are 11-4 in the previous 15 games, and 3-3 in the previous 6 playoff games. The Lobos have started 0-3 against just two teams in their history, which is on the line tonight against Denton Ryan. The Lobos started 0-3 against Atlanta High, and also started 0-8 against Shreveport Byrd to open a series, though against Marshall the Lobos also started 0-5-1. Only two teams in Longview's history currently hold a 3 or high game lead against the Lobos, Highland Park (3) and Shreveport Byrd (8). Overall, there's only been 31 times in Longview's history that they have lost 3 or more times against a single team, and the only team that currently holds a 3 or more game winning streak over the Lobos is Shreveport Byrd. Playoff wise, Longview will go for their 75th all-time playoff victory tonight.

    ON THIS DATE IN LOBO HISTORY: November 26th
    In 1912, Longview traveled to Mineola and walked away with a 26-0 victory.
    In 1936, the Lobos hosted Gladewater and defeated the Bears, 20-2, at Lobo Stadium.
    In 1942, Longview defeated Gladewater 20-13 at Lobo Stadium.
    In 1953, Bob Bartlett tallied twice, once on defense and once on offense, before Tony Rothrock pulled the Lobos to within a score at 19-13 in the fourth quarter. Marshall’s Harry Ford would finish the game off though with a 7 yard run in a 26-13 Marshall victory at Maverick Stadium. Four Lobo turnovers plagued Longview on the night.
    In 2011, Trey Williams rushed in a 58 yard touchdown before taking a 99-yard kickoff return to open the 2nd half to the house in a 17-6 Spring DeKaney victory over Longview. A windy day hampered the Lobo offense, in a season that saw the Wildcats run all the way to a State Championship.
