Did you know: Kilgore and Hallsville are meeting for the 30th time, and Kilgore leads the all-time series 20-8-1 … Hallsville snapped a five-game losing streak against the Bulldogs in 2018, rushing for 261 yards in a 20-10 win

Twitter-sized preview: Traditional “ground and pound” teams, the Bulldogs and Bobcats pride themselves on physical play up front. Kilgore did toss it around 23 times last week with new QB McElyea, but this one will come down to winning the battle up front
