Keys To Game:
Blue Devils must contain the Eupora rushing attack. The Eagles racked up 361 yards on the ground in their 42-27 victory over the Blue Devils last season.
For Eupora it's key to jump out on the relatively young Blue Devils quickly, and get their crowd into the game to put their home field advantage into full effect.
Which team is best conditioned to last four quarters in the grueling Mississippi August heat? Depth will also be a big factor, as this is a small school matchup.
Martavius Rockette. I believe if Head Coach Brad Embry can get his electric sophomore athlete 20-plus touches, Water Valley will have a great shot of earning a big season opening road win.
