The rivalry game with Yukon is only days away, and Mustang has high goals after last year’s 12-1 run to the semifinals. Not a lot of mileage on the Mustang buses this year, with trips to Lawton and Edmond being the longest of the bunch. Here’s a look at the Broncos’ schedule:
Sept. 4 vs. Yukon: The excitement never dies in this rivalry.
Sept. 10 at No. 10 Edmond North: An early top-10 test will be a good measuring stick for the Broncos’ several new starters.
Sept. 18 vs. Putnam City: Third straight week against a stout defense provides plenty of learning for a first-year starter at QB.
Sept. 25 vs. Edmond Santa Fe: Wolves are rebuilding, but strong up front, making for a good battle in the trenches.
Oct. 2 at Lawton: Plenty of speed to test the Broncos’ new defenders.
Oct. 9 vs. Norman North: The T-Wolves lost a lot but they should still be battling for a playoff spot.
Oct. 15 at Moore: The Lions are lacking numbers and experience.
Oct. 23 at Putnam North: The Broncos finish with three of the district’s best, starting here.
Oct. 30 vs. Del City: Mustang’s all-new secondary should be seasoned by now, but the Eagles have loads of offensive talent.
Nov. 6 at No. 6 Southmoore: Potentially a district championship on the line here.
