Great American Rivalry Series Presents: Odessa Permian vs. Midland Lee
Odessa Permian vs Midland Lee (TX) was featured in the book "Friday Night Lights" as well as its movie, though it is likely that nothing could truly capture the emotion involved in this game. This game is a community rallying point, a symbol of cohesive spirit, and a source of great pride for the victor. The implications of the game have died down a bit (from 1980 to 2000, the two teams combined to 10 State Finals appearances), but the competition will always be tight. 30 of the 54 games played have been decided by 10 points or less, and Permian holds the overall record 33-20-1. Roy Williams (NFL) once suited up for Permian, as well as Cedric Benson for Midland.
