MADISON (WKOW) -- This year's WIAA state football championships kick off Thursday morning at Camp Randall Stadium.
There will be four games Thursday in divisions 4-7; divisions 1-3 will take place on Friday.
It could be an historic day in Div. 2, as the Waunakee Warriors go for the state record for consecutive wins. They're at 48 right now; 49 would be a new record.
A win on Friday would also mean four consecutive state titles for the Warriors, so they have plenty of experience playing on the big stage at Camp Randall, and they're hoping to use that to their advantage.
"We've been there, we know all the facilities and how the routine works, so we can kind of base our routines off that. So we know what to expect," senior receiver Willie Freimuth said.
"Just because we're playing at a place that has about 70,000 more seats than this place does doesn't mean football's going to change. At the end of the day, you still gotta play the game and you still gotta go out there and try to enjoy the moment but also remember what you came there to do," senior quarterback Will Decorah said.
The Div. 2 state championship between Waunakee and Homestead will kick off at 1 p.m. on Friday.
