OUTLOOK: This game has decided the CIC the last three seasons, and likely will again this year. It's a matchup of the No. 5 team in the Class 2A rankings (St. Teresa) and the No. 2 team in the Class 1A rankings (Tuscola). The Warriors have won the last three matchups, and only one of them has been close — last year's three-point game. This season, each team has been tested once and passed with flying colors — in Week 1, St. Teresa beat Downs Tri-Valley, which is 1-2 but has losses to two undefeated teams. Tuscola beat 2-1 Central A&M last week. The Bulldogs have other weapons besides Wright, but he's the main reason why they're 27-4 since the start of the 2016 season. He has 7,934 career all-purpose yards, including 6,677 rushing yards, with 94 rushing touchdowns and 104 total TDs. Wright has 432 rushing yards and six total touchdowns in his three games against the Warriors, but has never beaten them.
