Their opponents this week, Northeast Mississippi, were relatively quiet despite winning four in a row until they defeated then No. 10 Northwest on the road 34-28. One team will be undefeated no longer. Tigers head coach Ricky Smither says he’s a little stunned with how his team has quickly turned some heads this season.
