The Varsity Letter research department attempted to find the last time it attended a football game between two undefeated teams this late in the season. The results are surprising.
According to the research, when Washington played at Waynesburg in the 2000 regular season finals, it marked the last occurrence.
Tonight, Clairton (3-0, 5-0) and Chartiers-Houston (3-0, 5-0) play for first place in the Class A Black Hills Conference.
The Bears are the WPIAL's highest scoring team. Chartiers-Houston ranks second to Clairton in points scored in the classification. For the Bucs to win, they must avoid a shootout.
This game comes down to how well the Chartiers-Houston defensive line can pressure Clairton quarterback Andrew Currington and how effectively the Bucs' defensive backs cover the Bears' receiver, which includes Division I prospect Kevin Weatherspoon.
If C-H can limit Clairton to one of two big plays and sustain a few, long scoring drives, the game could be a close one.
