It may be the biggest surprise match-up of any this weekend in Laramie. Class 2A was wide open this year, but it appeared that Lovell and Burns were on that collision course. That is until the Broncs were knocked off at home in the first round of the playoffs by Thermopolis. Then, last Friday, Lovell was upset by Big Horn in the semi’s. That allowed by Mountain View and the Rams to take advantage, setting up the two teams in Laramie Friday afternoon.
Mountain View hasn’t won a state championship in football since 1997, but has played in the title game five times since then, the last in 2004. Buffalo’s head coach Brent Walk says the that Big Horn is more than just their quarterback, which he says is a great athlete.
For Big Horn, head coach Michael McGuire said his team went through some tough times early this season, but he’s pleased with how they’ve matured over the season.
The 2A game will open up the weekend festivities at War Memorial Stadium in Laramie. Kickoff is set for noon Friday.
