By  | 

ARLINGTON, Texas - Kyler Murray threw four touchdown passes and ran for 188 yards and another score and Allen defended its Class 5A Division I championship with a 63-28 victory over Pearland on Saturday.

Allen scored the most points by a champion in the state’s highest classification in front of the biggest title game crowd in Texas history - 54,347 at the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The No. 1 team in the final Associated Press poll won its 27th straight game a week after a semifinal victory against DeSoto, the second-ranked team at the end of the regular season.

It was the third state title in three trips to the championship game for Allen (16-0), all in the past six years.

Connor Heath was 16 of 31 for 110 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions for Pearland (14-2).
