Jenks Heading to State Title with Thrilling Backyard Bowl Win
Tulsa, OKLA. —
A game that seems to always come down to the final snap did it again this afternoon.
Noah Hernandez burrowed his way into the endzone as time expired, and Jenks beat rival Union 27-24 to advance to the 6A-1 state title.
The last two and a half minutes saw three lead changes, with Union taking the lead with just over 20 seconds to play. It took Ian Corwin and the Trojans three plays to drive the length of the field for the win.
Jenks will take on Broken Arrow in the state championship.
