It was over before it started. The Tucker Tigers entered with four crucial defensive starters out for the season opener and it proved to be costly as they fell to McEachern 50-14 in the final game of the Corky Kell Classic. Sam Jackson ripped off 161 yards on nine carries and scored three first half touchdowns. Quay Holmes tacked on 64 yards rushing of his own. He and the rest of the starters were all pulled by the five minute mark of the second quarter.

Bailey Hockman completed 5-of-12 passes for 101 yards and one score, finding Tyler Smith three times for 50 yards and the lone touchdown. The Indians led 48-7 at the half. Garrett Rigby threw for 113 yards and two touchdowns in the loss.
