The Class 5A state final between Buford and Warner Robins has all the makings for an instant classic.
It figures to be an interesting clash in styles. The Demons (13-1) are built on offense and have steamrolled their last two playoff opponents 104-17 to reach their third consecutive 5A title game. The Wolves (13-1) are built on defense, evidenced by their first playoff shutout last week -- 29-0 over Jones County -- since a 48-0 win over Maynard Jackson in 2017.
Buford is looking for its first state title since capturing the Class 4A title in 2014. Warner Robins has not won a crown since winning the 2004 Class 4A title.
The two teams will meet at Georgia State Stadium on Friday afternoon for a 4:30 p.m. kickoff with the championship on the line. The game will be simulcast on WDUN AM 550 and WDUN FM 102.9 beginning at 4:30 p.m.
