Good day sports fans. Thank you for tuning in to the Tiger Ticket, the best place for Texas High sports news and scores.

If you are paying attention to Tiger football, you know that we beat the Arkansas High Razorbacks 21-0 in the annual cross-town rivalry. We had some defensive and offense highlights during the game those including Trevon Gooden with 10 tackles and a interception that he took back for a 46-yard touchdown. Also, Blake McCown had 10 tackles and Anthony Rhone had seven. On the offense side of things, Urian Nevels rushed more than 100 yards for the second week in a row.
