Two of the top private schools in the state battle on Thursday Night Lights...on Friday.

Bishop Lynch takes on Parish Episcopal in a battle for playoff positioning as tonight's game could help determine who gets a district title and a first-round bye in the postseason.

Bishop Lynch played for a state title a year ago but they've lost some key pieces from last year. All-State running back Charles Crawford transferred to Mesquite-Horn and Safety Plae Wyatt transferred to McKinney Boyd. Lynch is 3-3 on the year but is just now getting into the meat of district play. They see this as perhaps the most important game of the regular season. 

Parish Episcopal is coming into tonight on fire! The Panthers are 5-1 on the year and are coming off a dominating performance against the defending state champs, Bishop Dunne.

Episcopal is outscoring opponents 39-13 on average this season and putting up 400 yards of offense.

Sean Giggy is back on the call with Mike Leslie. Coverage starts at 7 p.m.
