Plenty of college football teams would like a shot at taking on Alabama. But it looks like one high-school team from Texas would like a piece of the unbeaten Crimson Tide, too.
Lake Travis High School, in Austin, Texas — and the alma mater of Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield — won the 6A Division I title over The Woodlands on Saturday night, 41-13. The win capped a 15-1 season and was the school’s first championship at one of the highest levels of Texas high-school football.
Late in the win, the television cameras spotted the following sign from a Lake Travis fan.

One member of Lake Travis’ team will get a chance to take on Alabama — wide receiver Maleek Barkley is headed to Arkansas. Per the Austin American-Statesman, Barkley hauled in a 65-yard touchdown pass in the game.
Alabama is a little preoccupied at the moment, preparing for Washington in the College Football Playoff. The Crimson Tide and Huskies play on Dec. 31 in Atlanta in the Peach Bowl.
