KEY PLAYERS: For Olney, Nolan Shan, Sr., QB; Carson Waggoner, Sr., WR; Gus Lathrop, Jr., RB/WR; Ian Miller, Sr., LB

KEYS TO THE GAME: Here’s the matchup that will likely determine who wins the Egyptian conference. Besides Olney’s game against Casey, both teams have played lockdown defense and haven’t given up more than two touchdowns to any other opponent. Both shut out their Week 3 opponent. The Tigers have scored slightly
more points than the Maroons, but a 154-144 differential is negligible. But where the comparisons stop is
how each team operates. Robinson sticks to its ground game, led by Jason Richart and complemented by Joe Smith and Bucky Stevens. Both Richart (852 yards, 8 touchdowns) and Smith (383, 6) are averaging 10 yards per carry behind a dominating line. Olney seems to fly through the air whether Nolan Shan or Klayton
Craig command the offense, as receivers Carson Waggoner and Nick Dobbs continually find separation.
