Jenks’ Allan Trimble Stadium will be the site of a playoff football game Saturday, but the Jenks Trojans won’t be a part of it.

Instead, No. 1 Owasso and No. 5 Broken Arrow will play for the second time this season in the Class 6A Division I semifinals at the Trojans’ home facility.

Owasso rallied for a 42-19 win at Broken Arrow on Sept. 13 and will take an 11-0 record into the star-studded matchup.

Jenks also plays in the semifinals, but the No. 6 Trojans will be in action Friday at Edmond North High School, facing the No. 6 Moore Lions, who upset No. 4 Edmond Santa Fe 41-28 in the first round.

The OSSAA announced sites and times for all four semifinal games in 6A Division I and Division II.

In 6A Division II, No. 1 Bixby faces No. 3 Del City at Putnam City and No. 2 Stillwater plays No. 6 Choctaw at Yukon, both on Friday night.

All four semifinal games are set for 7 p.m.

Owasso advanced to the semifinals with a 52-14 first-round win over Norman, while the Tigers eked past archrival Union 35-31.

The BA-Owasso semifinal matches the past two 6AI champions. Owasso won the 2017 crown and Broken Arrow claimed its first state football title last year.

Broken Arrow leads the series 27-12-1, but Owasso has won two of the last four games.

Jenks will play in the Oklahoma City area for the third time in five weeks. The Trojans mowed down Norman 49-23 in regular-season action on Oct. 25 and eliminated No. 2 Mustang 55-28 in the quarterfinals.

The Trojans have won all three previous meetings with Moore, including 17-7 in the 1998 semifinals.

No. 1 Bixby (11-0) and No. 2 Stillwater (11-0) rolled into the 6AII semifinals with convincing first-round wins over Midwest City and Sapulpa, respectively.

No. 3 Del City eliminated Booker T. Washington 33-7 and No. 6 Choctaw upset No. 4 Muskogee 29-21.

Bixby and Del City have never played in football, but the Stillwater-Choctaw semifinal will be a rematch from the regular season.

The Pioneers exploded past the Yellowjackets 74-14 on Oct. 11 and haven’t had a game closer than 35 points all season.
