Football: Durant 31, King 0

DURANT — Durant made history with a 31-0 victory over King as the Cougars improved to 10-0 and posted their first undefeated regular season in school history.

"Something we've never done here," coach Mike Gottman said. "I got chills talking about it and now doing something no Durant team has done before this."

The Cougars posted their fourth shutout this season and their seventh game in which they held the opponent to fewer than 10 points.

Durant recorded four sacks and intercepted Alexander Frederick to set up their first touchdown, a 17-yard pass from Trey Vandergrift to Reggie Gainer.

In the opening round of the playoffs, Durant hosts Tampa Bay Tech, which has scored 192 in their last five games.

"We'll be ready," Gottman said.
