Braswell running back Jamerion Sanford (26) carries the ball and is tackled by Guyer's Jaden Powerll (3) at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex, Friday, Nov. 6, 2020, in Denton, Texas.

The Denton area is no stranger to rivalry games, as there always seems to be a massive showdown every week.

So far this season in football, we've had coverage of Guyer vs. Ryan, Argyle vs. Celina, Guyer vs. Prosper and Ryan vs. Denton. And that's not even a complete list. This week, we add another biggie as Guyer and Braswell ready to lock horns in a key District 5-6A matchup.

The Wildcats are coming off a huge win over Prosper to remain unbeaten, and they have every intention of moving to 7-0 in their second-ever meeting against their crosstown rival, Braswell. The Bengals (4-2, 1-1 district) have plenty of weapons to offset Guyer's attack and are coming off an impressive 63-42 win over previously unbeaten Little Elm.

Much of that was because of Jaylon Burton, who went off for 363 rushing yards and six touchdowns in that game.

Meanwhile, Argyle is coming off a rare regular-season loss and hopes to get back into the win column with a home game against Anna on Friday. Other big Friday games include Denton traveling to Frisco Lone Star and the Aubrey Chaparrals putting their unbeaten record on the line at Celina. Pilot Point, winners of its last two games, hosts Paradise.

And don't forget about tonight's game. The No. 1-ranked Ryan Raiders host The Colony at C.H. Collins Athletic Complex.
