Yeah, I’m Gonna Have to Call You Back: A Whole Lot of State Champs

Week 8, let’s get it.

I hate to say I told you so, well it wasn’t much of a surprise, but Jeaux Burreaux’s Heisman is something I’ve been calling for the past 3 weeks. Moving on…

It’s playoff time

We’ve all seen the bracket by now so let’s just go ahead and get into it.

Without a doubt Oklahoma deserves to be the 4th seed, but there is no easy route for them. They are coming into this entire playoff as the underdog and I think it’s going to show on December 28th. Joe Burrow and Jalen Hurts are also going to have a little face off of their own which is what I’m probably most excited to watch about this game.

Prediction: LSU 38 – 17 Oklahoma

In the Clemson and Ohio State game, neither team has the upper hand. Both teams are undefeated going into this game, and they’ve both got insanely talented players. Although Clemson had a weaker schedule, they are coming into the game with the “underdog’ mentality which means this is going to be a very physical game. With Chase Young and Justin Fields on the Ohio State side, this could give OSU the edge with more “NFL” talent. However, sophomore quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, is a known threat who could just as easily lead the team to victory. This game will come to the last seconds.

Prediction: Ohio State 31 – 28 Clemson

WSU Shockers- State Champs of Oklahoma?

The Shockers men’s basketball team is off to a great start to their season, with a 9-1 record. While currently tied with Memphis in the AAC, and dominating Oral Roberts earlier in the season, that’s not what everyone should be congratulating them for. In the span of a week, they managed to literally own the entire state of Oklahoma. They, dare I say it, dominated Oklahoma State on December 8th in Stilly. This 80-61 loss put OSU at 7-2, with their only other loss to Georgetown. The Sooners felt their wrath not even a week later with an 80-75 loss in Wichita. This also makes Oklahoma 7-2, with an additional loss to Stanford. WSU’s next enemy will be VCU at home on Saturday.

Football City, USA

This Saturday will mark the end of the high school football 2019 season.

In the 6A D1 category, Duncanville (15-0) is going to battle it out with Galena Park North shore (14-1), who are the reigning D1 Champs. In the 6A D2 category Denton Guyer (14-1) will take on Austin Westlake (14-1).

But what’s most interesting about the championship this year, is that Denton has 2 teams in the competition for state. Denton Guyer is competing in the 6A division 2 category, while Denton Ryan (15-0) is competing against Alvin Shadow Creek (15-0) in the 5A D1 game. Ryan has been led this year by Junior running back and Texas commit, Billy Bowman. If both teams can pull out this state win, how big do you think that State parade is going to be back in Denton?

The State Championship game is played at Jerry World, I invite everyone to head on out and support these North Texas teams. It’s a great way to see that Cowboys Stadium without paying those big bucks.
