- The last time Saline won more than five straight was 2016 when the Hornets went on a nine-game tear in December and January.
- Saline is home to Pioneer and Bedford next week - completing their first run through the SEC Red. Pioneer is 4-6. The Pioneers lost to Huron, 52-30 on Friday. Bedford is 10-1. Bedford beat Monroe, 63-43 on Friday. Bedford has quite a few smaller schools on the schedule, including Blissfield, Whiteford, Stockbridge and Erie Mason.
