COWETA, Okla. — The Friday Night Live Game of the week landed on a Thursday for Week 7 as students get ready for a long Fall Break weekend.

Coweta hosted district rivals McAlester on Thursday night a few days after an EF-1 tornado blew through Coweta, damaging homes and leaving a mess for local schools who canceled classes through the end of the week.

Both football teams came into Thursday undefeated for the season, making the matchup critical for determining this season's Class 5A District 3 champion.

The Buffaloes didn't look to be cooperating with the Coweta storybook narrative, rolling to a 33-2 win over the Tigers to stay undefeated.

McAlester (7-0) goes back home next week to host Edison.

Coweta (6-1) will look to rebound on the road next week against Shawnee.
