All three Nolan County area high school football teams face opponents tonight they had little success against in 2012, and only Roscoe plays at home.
The Plowboys â€” 0-1 after losing to De Leon 34-21 in their opener â€” entertain Irion County in their home opener at 7:30 p.m. Highland, also 0-1 after losing to Motley County 62-59, travels to Sterling City.
Finally, Blackwell â€” 1-0 after beat Westbrook 52-0 last week â€” goes to Jayton.
Those three opponents won last yearâ€™s games by an average of nearly 39 points, but things should be better this time around.

The Classic will then end its run on Saturday, Sept. 14, at the Bowl with two more first-time participants, Booker and Brock, playing the finale at 6 p.m.
