- South Callaway head coach Tim Rulo strongly emphasizes that his state-ranked Bulldogs haven't concerned themselves with their positioning in the Class 2, District 6 standings.
With the start of district play a week away, South Callaway - ranked No. 6 in Class 2 - hosts the unbeaten Montgomery County Wildcats in what is arguably the most anticipated showdown in mid-Missouri tonight. Kickoff is at 7.
The Bulldogs - whose only loss this season came against Class 4 (Columbia) Battle - are 7-1 after flattening Father Tolton 48-0 last week in Columbia. The Wildcats, directed by John Klekamp, one of Rulo's former assistants, are 8-0 after overpowering Cuba 42-0.
