JENKS ( Okla.) at UNION ( Tulsa), Sept. 7
Some 30,000 fans are expected at the University of Tulsa's Chapman Stadium for the 40th edition of this rivalry, dubbed the Backyard Bowl because the two schools are just seven miles apart. Over the last 11 years, the Jenks Trojans, ranked No. 1 in Oklahoma, have won eight 6A state titles; the other three belong to the No. 2--ranked Union Redskins. Expect a shootout as a pair of senior quarterbacks, Union's Brandon Rogers (right) and Jenks's Mark Ginther (left), face off.
