2018 State Championships schedule: 3 ETX teams left standing

ARLINGTON, TX (KLTV) - We are down to just 12 teams left standing after 15 weeks of high school football.

In what is arguably the biggest four-day football event of the year, the 12 teams will take part in the 2018 UIL State Championships.

Out of the 12 teams, three are from the East Texas area. Two of those teams are regulars when talking about some of the best teams in Texas. One is making a historic trip to Arlington.

All state title games will be played at AT&T Stadium in Arlington starting Wednesday.

Here are the games involving our East Texas teams.
