Every year when the new schedule comes out, we typically see a few games on the schedule we’ve never seen.
In 2018, we will have
six seven regular-season games that have never been played.
Two of the
six seven involve Buffalo, which is moving from Class 3A to Class 2A, while two three others involve out-of-state foes.
The 2018 schedule is not necessarily complete. Schools below the Class 4A level still have opportunities to add Zero Week games, and some schools have open weeks they can fill.
The new series are:
Week 1: Yuma, Colorado, at Pine Bluffs; Southeast at Mitchell, Neb.
Week 2: Upton-Sundance at Wheatland; Star Valley at Sugar-Salem, Idaho
Week 3: Burns at Buffalo; Newcastle at Rocky Mountain
Week 5: Moorcroft at Buffalo
The longest active series scheduled to end in 2018 will be the series between Star Valley and Worland. The two programs have played each other every season since 1983. The Powell-Buffalo series, played every year since 1991, is also scheduled to end.
Updated 8:11 a.m. Nov. 30 to reflect the addition of the Southeast-Mitchell series.
