Sweetwater and Green-wood are both coming off a victory. The Mustangs were a 19-0 winner over Class 2A Early, while Greenwood (2-2) rallied from an 11-point first-half deficit to defeat 4A San Angelo Lake View 23-19.

Roscoe has also had to play an especially brutal non-district schedule as its four opponents so far have a combined record of 14-1.
