12. THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME FROM FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS – “UNDERDOGS” (2009)

In the third season of Friday Night Lights, the Dillon Panthers square-off against the South Texas Titans in the state championship game. While viewers quietly settled into this episode to watch the Panthers miraculously win yet another state title, they were served a curveball by the show’s writers when they lost to the Titans.

Even though there is plenty of unpredictable drama off the field for the Panthers, they usually made up for it by ending up on the winning side more often than not on the field. However, the magic wasn’t there this time and this episode helped further the unpredictable nature of the show with a close loss.
