CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — It's shaping up to be one of the biggest games inside the Corpus Christi city limits in years when Miller and Veterans Memorial Friday, and from Vets' side it's also a potential payback game.

The Eagles had a big early lead against Miller when the two faced off in the regular season.
