Because of conflicts with Oklahoma City Thunder and Big 12 football games, the Class 6A-4A state championship football games will air live on Fox Sports Oklahoma Plus Friday and Saturday from Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater.

Norman North and Jenks meet for the Class 6A title game at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Clinton and Anadarko play in the 4A finals at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, and the 5A title game between Carl Albert and Tulsa East Central at 7:30 Saturday night.

Al Jerkens (play-by-play), Rod Thompson (analyst) and Steve Marshall (sideline reporter) will call Friday's 6A championship. Marshall will serve as play-by-play announcer for Saturday's doubleheader with Thompson as analyst.

Fox Sports Oklahoma will televise an OSSAA Championship Spotlight special recapping Saturday's Class B final between Laverne and Pond Creek-Hunter, and the Class C final between Forgan and Tipton from Southwestern in Weatherford. Dates and times for the highlight show will be announced later.

Here are the Fox Sports Oklahoma Plus channel numbers across the state: AT&T U-verse 757 (1757 HD); Cox Communications-Oklahoma City/Tulsa 68 (715 HD); DirecTV 680 (680-1 HD); Dish 451 (Friday), TBA (Saturday); Fidelity Cablevision-Lawton 33; Pioneer Digital TV 113; Suddenlink-Stillwater/Cushing/Drumright 75; Suddenlink-Enid 73; Suddenlink-Muskogee 33; Suddenlink-Pauls Valley 2; Suddenlink-Perry 53; Suddenlink-Seminole 29; Tahlequah cable TV 55


The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association released advance-purchase tickets for this weekend's Class 6A-4A, B and C state championship football games on Monday through its website,

Adult tickets are $7 and student (K-12) tickets are $5.


Clinton running back Marquiz Simpkins made headlines with his two touchdowns and 185 yards rushing in the Red Tornadoes' 40-22 Class 4A semifinal win over Ada on Friday night.

But it was the Clinton defense that came up with the biggest plays, forcing five turnovers against the Cougars.
