Ford Game of the Week Returns with Top Oklahoma Match-ups

The season kicks off Friday, Aug. 28th on YurView OK (Cox ch. 3) and OK Extra (ch. 93)

Oklahoma high school football returns with the Ford Game of the Week on YurView. On August 28th, the season kicks off with great opening night matchups between teams from the Oklahoma City and Tulsa regions.

Friday’s Ford Game of the Week doubleheader features Oklahoma City area rivals, Midwest City vs. Westmoore. In Northeastern Oklahoma, the Highway 97 rivalry renews when Sand Springs heads to Sapulpa. Both games start at 7:00 pm CT.

This season’s Ford Game of Week schedule includes 11 weeks of the best Oklahoma high school football matchups with 20 regular-season football games, three OSSAA State Champions from 2019, and the annual Backyard Bowl rivalry game.

Featured Teams and Matchups

Among the top games are three undefeated teams from last season. Class 2A state champion Metro Christian takes on Holland Hall September 18. The Class 6A Division 1 champ Owasso Rams go on the road to take on the Mustang Broncos October 23, and Class 6A Division II champion Bixby Spartans face a tough road test against the Muskogee Roughers – also on October 23. Don’t sleep on October 2nd – that’s the night Edmond Santa Fe and Westmoore meet in another big battle.

There’s not a bigger rivalry game in Oklahoma than the Union vs. Jenks Backyard Bowl. Since 1996, the two schools have combined for over 20 state championships in Oklahoma’s largest classification. YurView will have the Backyard Bowl live on Friday, September 11.
