How good has this rivalry been since Rafe Watkins took over at Guthrie in 2001? Watkins is 5-4 against Carl Albert coach Gary Rose, and we’ve seen some dang good games and memorable moments:

Guthrie has not forgotten about this beatdown in its backyard. Tre’ Porter had four touchdowns for the Titans, who led 33-0 at halftime.
2008: Carl Albert 16, Guthrie 13

Carl Albert’s David Oku and Guthrie’s Kye Staley headlined the show, but it was the efforts of Keaton Callins and Clayton Smith that gave the Bluejays the win.
