The games that made the most waves last week that affected our polls today were Clear Lake knocking of then-No. 9 Friendswood, Lufkin knocking Oak Ridge out of the rankings and Tomball upsetting district-leader Huntsville in Class 5A.

So what will this weekend bring?

In Class 5A, No. 1 Katy faces steady-climbing Strake Jesuit for the district title. Could be lopsided in the Tigers’ favor, but kudos for the Crusaders being in this position. Up north, No. 2 faces No. 13 Klein for their district title. The Bearkats only stubbed their toe against Oak for their only blemish.

The heavyweight game of the week?

No. 5 Ridge Point vs No. 9 FB Bush for bragging rights in Fort Bend and the championship belt. Stay tuned for our predictions later in the week.

In Class 5A, No. 2 Angleton faces No. 9 Foster. The big question is will star BJ Foster be on the field or on the sideline due to injury. Tomball now faces Magnolia West, who is also undefeated in 20-5A. In Class 21-5A, Porter and New Caney go for the No. 2 spot in district.

The Houston Texans loss another heartbreaker on Sunday, and Davis Mills came up short in the fourth quarter once again. But there's plenty of blame to go around. The defense kept the team in the game, but gave up historic numbers on the ground.

Plus, the play calling and use of Rex Burkhead have once again become an issue.

Don't miss the video above as we break down all the action, and look ahead at the big picture.
