Two undefeated teams play here at 7 p.m. Friday as Shallowater and Graham meet in a Class 3A, Division II state quarterfinal at Mus-tang Bowl. Both squads have perfect 13-0 marks and were state-ranked at the end of the regular season.
Graham, the District 5-3A champion, entered the play-offs ranked No. 3 and has crushed Castleberry (68-0), Glen Rose (34-0) and Lubbock Estacado (42-6) during a dominating postseason run so far. Shallo-water entered the playoffs as the District 2-3A champ-ion, and was ranked No. 10 in Class 3A, and has since beaten Dalhart (42-12), Monahans (43-35) and Vernon (35-26). This will be the last time the two teams meet for awhile; Graham is in Class 4A, Division I the next two years and Shallowater will be playing in Class 3A, Division II due to the fact that Graham has 690 students, 253 more than Shallowater. Fridayâ€™s winner plays Argyle (13-0), which was ranked No. 1 in Class 3A during the regular season, or Gladewater (7-6) in the state semifinals.
