2019 BA Football Schedule: Tigers open title defense on the road
The defending Class 6A State Champion Broken Arrow Tigers will play three of their first four games on the road and have just one home game before the calendar flips to October.
The 2019 schedule is a reversal of the 2018 version as the Tigers open the football season with two games on the road – the first at Mansfield, Texas, on Aug. 31 and the second at Union on Sept. 6 – before hosting Owasso on Sept. 13 in a battle between the 2017 and 2018 Class 6A state champions.
After an open date on Sept. 20, a 2018 state final rematch awaits at Jenks on Sept. 27. That contest is the only 7:30 p.m. game on the Tigers regular season schedule. All other games are set for 7 p.m. kickoffs.
Broken Arrow begins a string of four of its next five games at home with an Oct. 4 match up against Norman. After a Thursday (Oct. 10) trip to Westmoore, BA hosts Edmond Santa Fe a week later – Thursday, Oct. 17. Homecoming is Oct. 25 against Yukon and Senior Night is Nov. 1 against Edmond Memorial.
The Tigers end the regular season on Nov. 8 at Enid.
The first round of the playoffs are set for Nov. 15 and the state semifinals are scheduled for Nov. 22. A week off will precede the state championship game, which will be either Nov. 6 or 7. Each district’s top two teams will host a first-round playoff game, while the semifinals will be at a neutral sites. The location of the title game has yet to be determined.
Season ticket renewals begin July 15. New season ticket may be purchased Aug. 5.
On its way to the school’s first 13-0 perfect season and state championship, Broken Arrow outscored opponents 491-76 during the regular season.
Broken Arrow will host a four-team scrimmage on Aug. 23 at Memorial Stadium. Teams scheduled to participate are Choctaw, Coweta and North Little Rock.
