Pine Bluff, Ark. (KTHV) - Week 3 of THV 11's Showcase Game of the Week features a showdown in Jefferson County; as the North Little Rock Charging Wildcats visit the Pine Bluff Zebras.

The Wildcats decimated the Zebras 47-10 last season, however Pine Bluff Head Coach Bobby Bolding says it's a new year.

"Well our defense this year wasn't on the field last year, they all graduated. So, they don't really have a mindset of..It's not really a factor of what happened last year."

The visiting Wildcats are looking to bounce back themselves after falling 23-24 to Mississippi's top ranked South Panola last week. Following the loss Coach Brad Bolding says his team is going back to the fundamentals.

"We've got to tackle, we've got to block, we can't make a bunch of mental mistakes. We've got to eliminate penalties", Bolding says.

No matter the outcome both head coaches will be seeing a very familiar face across the field when the brothers battle it out Friday night.

"It's business as usual we don't play a down and both programs have a lot of respect for each other so like I said last year thank God we're not playing."
