Oklahoma vs. Trinity may have fallen through but there are more State vs. State battles being lined up for Texas Stadium the last week of August!


Buford to open 2008 season at Dallas Cowboys' stadium
Defending champion Wolves to participate in Texas vs. USA Showcase

The Wolves are headed west.

Defending Class AA state champion Buford will open the 2008 football season on Aug. 30 in the Texas vs. USA Showcase at Texas Stadium in Dallas.

Coach Jess Simpson said Friday that Buford's opponent has not been set yet, since the event will pit several Texas schools against out-of-state teams over two days. But it will likely be either Justin Northwest, from suburban Dallas-Fort Worth, or Mansfield Timberview of Arlington, Texas.

Either way, Buford will get to play on the home field of the Dallas Cowboys.

"This is going to be a great opportunity for us," Simpson said. "I think our coaches and kids are all pretty doggone excited about it."

Buford also started the 2007 season outside the state, playing in the Ohio vs. USA Challenge in Canton, Ohio. It won that game, beating Grove City (Ohio) 34-7 to begin its undefeated (15-0) year.

Simpson said the Wolves initially hoped to play all their games in Georgia in 2008. But with only nine games scheduled, they were having trouble finding a 10th team willing to play them.

"We kind of had mixed feelings about it," Simpson said. "But we got into a bind where we could not find a 10th game, and the people with this event kept calling. So we decided to do it."

Buford will begin its in-state schedule at home against North Hall on Sept. 5.

Here some more on the State vs. State rivalry @ Texas Stadium

March 14, 2008
Euless Trinity will meet nationally known John Curtis of Louisiana in a Labor Day showdown at Texas Stadium.
Trinity will be the defending Class 5A Division I state champion with two state titles in the last three years. John Curtis won its 22nd state title last December.
The games are part of a national series set up by Intersport, a marketing company which bought the rights and is expanding the Herbstreit Ohio vs. USA Challenge.
In addition to the Trinity meeting with John Curtis, Cedar Hill is playing Cincinnati (OH) La Salle and Colleyville Heritage is playing Clovis East (CA), which will be a great duel between Heritage's fast-paced, no-huddle, tony Franklin spread offense with Clovis East's Double Wing T-formation that has been dominating in Northern California.
Klein Forest, Arlington Bowie, Ruston (La.) and Buford (Ga.) are also among the mix for what could be as many as eight games.

I think this will be a good series of games to go see! A great way to kick off the 08-09 football season for the DFW area.
