EMCC takes on Mississippi Delta in Scooba

SCOOBA, Miss. (WTOK) - The East Mississippi Community College Lions play Mississippi Delta Thursday night in Scooba. The teams were involved in a brawl during the 2015 season.

The brawl in October in Moorhead caused EMCC to forfeit its chance at a third consecutive national championship by being disqualified from the MACJC playoffs. Now the teams meet again on the gridiron in Scooba.

The Lions led MDCC 48-0 right before half-time. The fight was showcased on the Last Chance U documentary on Netflix.

EMCC has put that in the past and is looking for a 2016 win.

Officials say there is nothing different about tonight's game in way of heightened security or anything else.

The Netflix crew will be there again for the 7 p.m. game time start.

The Lions have never lost to Mississippi Delta under Coach Buddy Stephens.
