1988 Class 4A State Championship

DVD — GAME FILM

Bettendorf (12-0) vs. Newton (12-0)

It was predicted at the start of the 1988 season that these two team would meet in the state championshipand depending on which poll you read, both were ranked as the #1 team in Class 4A. Certainly, this game's juggernaut-like hype was warranted: both teams were top-ranked, unbeaten, featured [returning] All-State tailbacks, and had blue collar defenses. Oh yeah, to up the stakes even more, Bettendorf was not only the defending 4A champion, but they also had a 24-game winning streak on the line.  The result? Well, let's just say that Bettendorf "owed" Newton for beating their "Golden Boys" back in 1980and in this version of ThunderUNIdome, two teams entered unbeaten but only would leave that way.
