The Temple Wildcats continue their 2017 playoff battle Friday as they take on the Manvel Mavericks at Prairie View A&M University’s Panther Stadium, and all Temple ISD schools will release students early to allow families to make it to the game on time.

Release times are as follows:

Pre-K - 2:00 PM
Elementary Schools - 2:15 PM
Middle Schools - 2:45 PM
High Schools - 3:10 PM

TISD spokesman Matthew LeBlanc stressed that academics and attendance will remain a priority Friday, so all students are expected to attend classes unless they're sick. (Better get a doctor's note.)

The game kicks off at 7:30 PM Friday. If you can't make it to Prairie View A&M University's Panther Stadium to attend the game in person, you can hear all the action on our sister station, KRock 101.7 FM, at, and via the KRock1017 mobile app.
