Game Of The Week: Broken Arrow Faces Off With Owasso

Friday, September 8th 2017, 6:19 pm

It's a top-five matchup in the biggest class in the state - Broken Arrow at Owasso and the Tigers have won 10 of the last 11 meetings between these two teams.

Broken Arrow comes into Friday night looking to avoid its first 0-3 start in a decade.

Head Coach David Alexander says his team needs to learn how to get over that hump.

"We're playing really well.  We need to figure out how to win. We've played as good of opponents as anyone in the country.  We're playing good.  We scheduled very hard in the non-district, again with the third game being Owasso, they're a great football team.  Our goal is to use non-district to get as good as we can possibly get," Alexander said. 

Owasso is 2-0 on the season and ranked number two in Class 6A-1.

The Rams opened the season with an impressive win at Jenks, then went on the road and picked up a victory at Bartlesville.

Head coach Bill Blankenship said those two wins give them some momentum heading into the game Friday.

"Well, I love the growth that I've seen from our guys.  I love the fact that we had a big win in week one, and we were able to handle the success and go to Bartlesville and play really well and take care of business.  This will by far be the toughest challenge we face. See if we're up to it," Blankenship said. 
Kickoff is set for 7:30.
