One hundred twelve wins, and no losses.

That's the combined record of the eight high school state championship teams in Oklahoma this season.

Not a single defeat in the most dominant year of the state's cumulative champions to date.

Oklahoma high school football records prior to 1960 get a little sketchy, but since that point, there had never been a year in which every state champion finished undefeated until last week. That includes some years in the 1960s when only four champions were crowned.

The odds of all eight champions finishing undefeated are pretty slim. In Class 6A alone, there hadn't been an undefeated champion since Tulsa Union in 2002. Only three of the eight title games — Class 2A, 3A and C — involved two unbeatens, so five teams had a chance to spoil perfection.

Combined, the eight champs outscored their opponents by nearly 4,000 points this season, with a 5,101-1,103 difference.

Guthrie's undefeated year in Class 5A was unusual because of the parity that struck the class this year. After the third week of the season, the Bluejays were the only undefeated team remaining in 5A.

Here are this year's state champions and their records: Jenks (14-0), Guthrie (14-0), Anadarko (14-0), Kingfisher (15-0), Davis (15-0), Hollis (14-0), Laverne (14-0) and Cherokee (12-0).
