Heart of Texas Bowl
No. 3 Trinity Valley (11-0) vs. No. 10 Coffeyville (9-2) — Coffeyville coach Aaron Flores went from being on the hot seat before the season to being one of the hottest coaches in NJCAA come bowl time. The result is the Red Ravens in the premiere bowl game outside of the NJCAA championship and facing a team that, most years, would’ve earned a spot in the title game.
Trinity Valley is almost impossible to stop offensively — the Cardinals average 658.1 yards of total offense and are 89 yards short of breaking the NJCAA record set by East Mississippi last season.
