The Texas High School football season came to an end after six state champions were crowned on Friday and Saturday night. West Orange-Stark shuts down Sweetwater 24-6 in class 4A Division II. In 4A Division I, the Carthage Bulldogs are state champs for the fifth time in eight years, winning 31-17 against Wylie in 4A DI. In small 5A, Aledo beats Calallen 24-16. For the 5A Division I title, the Highland Park Scots win a defensive battle over Temple 16-7. The Desoto Eagles win their first ever state crown, beating Cibolo Steele 38-29 in 6A Division II and Lake Travis wins their sixth state title with a win over The Woodlands 41-13.
Last night the Dallas Cowboys get back on the winning track, 26-20 over Tampa Bay. The Cowboys fed Zeke Elliott for over 180 total yards and a touchdown as Dallas improves to 12-2 on the season. The defense came up with four sacks while Jeff Heath, Byron Jones and Orlando Scandrick intercepted Tampa Bay Quarterback, Jameis Winston. A win next week over Detroit will give the Cowboys a bye in the opening round of the playoffs and home field advantage throughout the post-season.

Despite the win, the Mavs still have the leagues worst record at 7-20 on the season and will be back in action tonight in Denver. Tip off is at 8pm.
