LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - It's one of the hottest tickets in town, but you better hurry. Tuesday, tickets go on sale for Longview's State Championship game against Lake Travis in Waco.

This weekend, the Lobos earned their spot in the title game with a win over Denton Guyer. This is the second year in a row Longview will take on Lake Travis for the title, and fans say this is their year.

"Last year the rush was unbelievable," said Pat Collins, the athletic director. "I think we sold right at 5,000 tickets last year. So as opposed to having to go back and print some more, we just got all 5,000 up front."

Tickets for the championship game go on sale Tuesday at the Longview Athletic Center. They are available from 8am to 4:30pm through Thursday. Then, if any are left, they'll be available Friday from 8 to noon.

The game is 6pm Saturday night at Floyd Casey Stadium in Waco.
