Clear eyes, full hearts … Taylor Kitsch?

At least that's what the ladies of Friday Night Lights said at this weekend's ATX Television Festival in Austin during a cast reunion commemorating the 10th anniversary of the pilot episode.

The actresses who played the Collette sisters on the beloved show reminisced on their good times on set with Kitsch, a.k.a. Texan heartthrob Tim Riggins.

"Taylor Kitsch and I got in the most trouble together," Stacey Oristano, 36, told PEOPLE of the biggest mischief-maker on set. "We just ended up making up this game where all we would try to do was make each other laugh."

Texas forever!

Adrianne Palicki imagines that almost four years after Friday Night Lights blew the final whistle, her character Tyra would be living the dream in 2015 as the second coming of Connie Britton.

"I think that she's literally become Tami Taylor," Palicki, 32, told PEOPLE on Thursday at the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas. "I think she's a counselor at some really awesome school, maybe a university somewhere, maybe married to Tim Riggins. And he's a coach of some football team, and they're literally like the reincarnation of [Tami and Eric]."

Making G.I. Joe: Retaliation with Channing Tatum, Bruce Willis and the Rock, Adrianne Palicki was not one to be intimidated – not after all the noises they made.

Tatum, it seems, also did something even more for the gang.
