Blair Bears upset top-ranked Skutt Catholic, 45-28

This was certainly the most exciting Blair football game I ever remember, and by far the biggest upset. Skutt, the defending Class B state champion had won 16 consecutive games and was the Omaha World Herald’s top-ranked team in Class B through the first five weeks of the season. Go Bears!
