Eight unbeaten programs remain standing in Class 1A. And after Friday night, that number will be cut by at least one.

Defending 2A state champion and top-ranked OABCIG, led by University of Iowa commit Cooper DeJeanCooperDeJean6'2" | ATHOA-BCIG | 2021StateIA, heads to face Underwood. Both teams are a perfect 5-0 on the season.

Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. from the Underwood High School.

"It’s definitely wild to be playing a 1 vs. 2 game in the regular season," DeJean said. "It will be a fun one."

The two have not played since 2015, with Underwood winning that year, 62-7. The season prior, OABCIG claimed a 36-7 victory.

Both have experienced nothing but success in 2020. The Falcons are coming off a 63-14 thrashing of MVAOCOU and have scored over 40 points in all but one game.

The Eagles topped East Sac County last Friday, 50-7, and have yet to play a game closer than their 41-8 victory over Tri-Center in Week 2.

DeJean is a multi-threat, as the senior has thrown for 1,460 yards with 15 touchdowns. He also leads OABCIG with 348 yards rushing and seven scores, adding touchdowns by way of a 95-yard kickoff return and 42-yard punt return.
