The Hornets (4-2) jumped two spots in the poll to No. 7, after receiving a win via forfeit from Montgomery.
The Mustangs (5-1) come into Friday night’s showdown after dropping their first game of the season, 41-7 against A&M Consolidated.
The top six picks in the Class 5A, Division II poll stayed idle, led by defending state champion Aledo (5-1).
