1 Class 6A: No. 2 Broken Arrow (1-1) at No. 1 Union (1-1) (7:05 p.m.)
The outlook: Both teams are trying to rebound from tough losses against out-of-state powers in this rematch of last year's state title game. Union lost 21-18 at Euless (Texas) Trinity and Broken Arrow fell 20-10 to Bentonville (Ark.) last week.
Keep an eye on: Union linebacker Coleby Evans, the hero of last year's state title game as he returned an interception to set up a touchdown and scored the winning TD on a 30-yard fumble return with 3:51 left to lift the Redskins 23-22. He had 16 tackles in a season-opening win over Jenks.
Tickets: Union-side tickets will be on sale from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Union Multipurpose Activity Center's Redskin Room. They also will be on sale from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday and 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the UMAC ticket booth. Tickets for the Broken Arrow side will be sold from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at Broken Arrow High School, next to the football stadium. Tickets are $10 (adults) and $4 (students). Any remaining tickets for the game will go on sale at 5:30 p.m. Friday at Union-Tuttle Stadium.
Series history: The Redskins have won 27 of the past 28 meetings, with Broken Arrow's last victory coming in 2008. Union won 21-14 in the regular season last year.
