The Tuttle defense celebrates a turnover last week at Bill Hinkle Field in Tuttle.

The Tuttle Tigers' quest to defend their 2018 state title is still alive.

Following its 17-7 win over Chickasha in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs, Tuttle sits three wins away from another state championship. The Tigers are scheduled to take on Broken Bow on the road in a quarterfinal matchup.

The Tigers enter the matchup with Broken Bow with a record of 10-1. 

Tuttle finished second in District 4A-2 in the regular season before beating Chickasha by 10 at home.

The Tigers have won their last five games. Tuttle's only loss this season is to an undefeated Bethany team.

Through their 11 games this season, the Tigers have given up just 13 points per game and are averaging 35 points per game.

The Tigers will look to avoid getting beat by Broken Bow, a team that pulled off an upset in the first round of the postseason. Broken Bow finished fourth in 4A-4 and defeated 4A-3's No. 1 team — Bristow — in the first round.

Broken Bow enters the matchup with Tuttle 7-4 on the season after the win over Bristow. The Savages picked up a 28-3 win last week after entering the postseason with three losses in a row.

Broken Bow is allowing just 13.8 points per game this season and is averaging 30.6 points per game entering the game with Tuttle.

The two teams are scheduled to play Friday in Broken Bow and are scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.
