Bruceville-Eddy's varsity football team is on the verge of making the playoffs for the first time since 1985.

If Marlin beats New Waverly High School on Friday, Bruceville-Eddy will make the playoffs. If the opposite happens, New Waverly's victory would force a three-way tie for the last playoff spot in Week 11. In that case, Bruceville-Eddy would need to win next week to make the playoffs.

Bruceville-Eddy's current playoff drought is the longest in Class 3A history and the sixth longest in the state of Texas.
