Thursday Night Lights 2017 schedule released

SBG San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO - The fall schedule for Thursday Night Lights was released on Tuesday, and top to bottom, it might be the most competitive slate ever put together.

Lee and Taft kick off things on opening night (Aug. 31) from Gus Stadium, while Week 2 gives us O'Connor and Churchill followed by Brandeis and Boerne Champion. It's been awhile since the Chargers have been on TNL.

The Clark Cougars and McCollum Cowboys will duke it out in Week 4, then it's Brennan and Holmes.

Two weeks later, Highlands will play Edison, but not before we get O'Connor again, this time they'll face Stevens.

For the first time ever, the Reagan Rattlers will play on TNL when they face Madison.

And looking to the end of the season, we have the backyard brawl between Steele and Clemens.
