The Hoover Bucs may have beaten Homewood during the regular season, but now it's a whole new ball game at the State Semi-Finals.
Propst calls his senior leaders DeJohn and Mark into his office, telling the two they need to finish strong. Although DeJohn was hurt in the last game against Thompson, both he and the team know there's a big game ahead. Every game is do or die, and since preparation wins games, Coach Propst has his boys turning up the speed at practice.
While the boys feel the pressure in practice, Brittany, Kristen and Maria take a trip to a Tarot card reader. But, although the three girls are looking for a fun outing after class, the reader's predictions turn both Brittany and Kristen to tears. Kristen's reading causes her to question her relationship with Charlie, and Brittany's deck suggests she won't end up marrying Mark.
When Mark arrives at Brittany's house with a 'just because' red pea coat present, she's less excited than he had hoped. Although she says she loves the jacket, he wishes she hadn't just bought herself a bag full of clothes from the mall. As he starts to pry into her mood, he finds out about the Tarot card reading and flips. Wishing his girlfriend wouldn't put so much faith in the cards, Mark tells Brittany not to listen to the readings.
It's game time and the Bucs are ready to roll against Homewood. Although Ross throws away an early interception, the Bucs defense makes a stand. After several turnovers and touchdowns, Ross takes matters into his own hands as he runs in a 61-yard touchdown, bringing the Bucs the lead. Hoover defense pulls down a quick quarterback sack, and with two more touchdowns, the Buccaneers take in a 37-14 victory over Homewood.
But, the Bucs can't celebrate for long. In the locker room after the big game, Coach Propst tells his boys that the next round of playoffs will be against Vestavia, Hoover's rival. Likening Vestavia's players to kamikaze pilots, Propst argues that there's a "cultural" war ahead, and he'll need everyone's best efforts to seal the deal on the State Championship title.
