Five things to note:

1. These teams played a two-game series in 2004-05. EHS won the 2004 meeting by a 25-18 count in overtime, in Franklin Furnace, but lost to the Bobcats the following season.

2. Green hasn’t faced a TVC Hocking team since 2013, when Waterford defeated the Bobcats by a 44-6 count in Scioto County. Green’s last win over a TVC Hocking school was September 8, 2006, when GHS beat Miller by a 30-14 final.

3. Eastern has both recorded and allowed 33 first downs over the first two weeks of the season. The Eagle offense has 608 total yards with six scores, but the EHS defense has allowed 655 yards and nine touchdowns.

4. So far this fall, Eastern’s offense has revolved around senior quarterback Jett Facemyer. Facemyer has 377 yards and four touchdowns passing to go with 144 yards and three scores on the ground.

5. Green is 2-0 for the first time since 2012, when the Bobcats finished 3-7. GHS hasn’t won three consecutive games since the turn of the century.

SHS defense last week: 84 rushing yards, 22 passing yards

Five things to note:

1. Last year’s Southern victory was the Tornadoes’ first over Wahama in the 21st century. The White Falcons were previously 15-0 against SHS since 1995.

2. Southern’s last trip to Bachtel Stadium was on September 12, 2014. Wahama defeated the visiting Tornadoes by a 30-14 final in that tilt. WHS was 3-2 at home last year and will look to win its home opener for the 10th consecutive year.

3. Last week’s 58-0 loss is Wahama’s largest margin of defeat since prior to 1995. It is also just the third time WHS has been shutout in a TVC Hocking contest.

4. With last week’s victory over Frontier, Southern is unbeaten in regular season non-league play for the first time since the playoff season of 2013. That’s is the only other time in the last 20 years that SHS went unbeaten in non-league play.

5. Defense has led SHS so far this fall, as the Tornadoes have allowed just 300 yards and 19 first downs over the first two weeks. The Purple and Gold have also recorded seven takeaways in those wins. Wahama’s defense has allowed 657 yards and 23 first downs, with the White Falcons having three takeaways.
