State championship weekend on the gridiron begins with a rematch, as defending champ Buffalo takes on Mountain View in the Class 2A title game.

The Bison beat the Buffaloes 43-18 in last year’s championship game.

That victory gave Buffalo their first state title since 2005. Now the Bison look for back-to-back crowns similar to ’04-and-’05.

Mountain View last won it all in 2017. The Buffaloes are looking for their third Class 2A state championship in the last six seasons.

Both teams are undefeated this year and come in with 10-0 records.

A key statistical match-up will be Buffalo’s No. 1 offense that averages 408.8 yards and 45.3 points per game facing Mountain View’s No. 1 defense that allows only 102 yards and 3.7 points per game. For more statistical info on the Bison and Buffaloes click the stats link below.
