The game is at Lincoln's Memorial Stadium on Monday, Nov. 19, at 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults. (See ticket info below.)

"We want all of Grand Island to come to Lincoln and turn their Memorial Stadium into our Memorial Stadium," said GIPS Superintendent Dr. Tawana Grover. "We are so excited for our student athletes, managers, trainers, coaches and staff to be able to have this Class A championship experience."
