The 82nd annual Maskat Shrine Oil Bowl Classic football game between East and West Texas high school players will kick off Saturday, June 15, at 7 p.m.

The game will be played at the Maskat Shrine Bowl in Wichita Falls.

KETK will livestream the game on our website.

The Oil Bowl started as a simple summertime West Texas vs. East Texas high school all-star football game back in 1938 and has become a Texas tradition.

It has also become a means of raising funds for Shriners Hospitals for Children, which help children with orthopedic and burn injuries. “Strong legs run, so weak legs may walk” is the Oil Bowl motto.
