What to know: Much is at stake against the Longhorns and Wolverines. Lambert can guarantee itself a playoff spot with a win, or could finish anywhere from third to fifth in the region with a loss. West, meanwhile, is already in but looking lock up second place for good.

Lambert has to be worried about a West offense that’s rolling behind quarterback Hampton McConnell (1,491 passing, 714 rushing, 20 TDs) and running back Trevor O’Brien (846 rushing, 12 TDs). West has to be worried about a Lambert defense led by linebacker Dillon Alexander (38 tackles, 7 sacks) and cornerback Jeremy Johnson (63 tackles, 6 INTs).
