The 2022 version of Friday Night Lights is just around the corner and YurView has comprised another solid schedule of compelling Oklahoma’s Ford Game of the Week to broadcast.
The broadcast season begins Thursday, August 25th when Putnam City West battles Western Heights. The Patriots are looking to make some noise in 6A-II this season, while the Jets play their first game as a member of Class 4A.
Jenks, the two-time defending 6A-I state champions, will be showcased on YurView three times. The Trojans will be featured on consecutive weeks when they play host to Owasso on Friday, September 2nd and the following week when they take on crosstown rival Union in the annual Backyard Bowl on September 9th. They return to the airwaves October 28th when Broken Arrow pays a visit to Allan Trimble Stadium.
Choctaw, one of the preseason favorites in 6A-II, will have two games shown on YurView. The Yellowjackets, who advanced to the quarterfinals last year after making it to the title game in 2020, will host Edmond Santa Fe on Friday, September 2nd and Deer Creek on Friday, October 7th.
Another premier showdown is scheduled for Friday, September 30th when Tulsa’s Booker T. Washington hosts Stillwater. Both teams are expected to challenge for the 6A-II title and the district championship could be on the line that night as well. The Pioneers won last year’s matchup, 35-26, in the 6A-II quarterfinals.
Veteran YurView broadcasters Mike Ziegenhorn and Rod Thompson will announce the eastside games this season. Steve Marshall and former Oklahoma State defensive back Deion Imade will handle the broadcasting duties for the westside games.
All games will be broadcast on Cox’s YurView Channel 3. Paid subscribers can also view live telecasts and replays online.
