Where: East Side Sports Complex at East Central High School.

Radio: KEOK, FM-102.1.

Nicknames: Tahlequah Tigers; East Central Cardinals.

Coaches: Tahlequah - Brad Gilbert (second second, 2-16); East Central - Bobby Klinck (second season, 12-10).

Last week: Pryor 41, Tahlequah 15; Collinsville 55, East Central 34.

News to know: Tahlequah was eliminated from postseason contention with its loss to Pryor last week. ... East Central needs to win to stay at least one game ahead of both Coweta and Central in the 5A-4 standings. The Cardinals are currently tied for third in the district, but lost to Claremore earlier in the season, thus making the Cardinals the fourth-place team. A loss for East Central could make things dicey with a road game at Pryor in Week 10. ... East Central has beaten Tahlequah the past two season by a combined score of 103-14.

Looking ahead: Tahlequah will close the season at home against Collinsville on Nov. 8, and East Central will play district leader Pryor.
