For the fifth time in six years, Bixby is an Oklahoma high school football state champ. Bixby, which entered the game ranked No. 103 in the High School Football America national rankings, beat Stillwater 40-36 to capture the Class 6A-II state title before over 7,000 fans at Central Oklahoma University.

Bixby had to battle from behind several times. The Spartans trailed 17-3 going into the second quarter, but led 19-17 at the half. Bixby led 33-23 earlier in the fourth quarter, but with just over three minutes to go in the game, Stillwater took a 36-33 after running back Qwontrel Walker scored on a 79-yard rushing touchdown.

Mason Williams 12-yard screen pass to Braylin Presley proved to be the game-winner with 1:04 to go in the game.
