Game: Played Friday December 5, 1975 at Town Creek
The Golden Bears would score at will against the helpless Hokes Bluff Eagle's defense in the first half in a 53-0 rout for the state championship in Class 2A. Hazlewood would score every time they had possession of the football in the first half except when the clock ran out on them at halftime. They would score on seven of eight possessions.
            Hazlewood amassed 412 yards rushing in the game led by Gary Madden's 202 yards and five touchdowns. The Golden Bears defense would hold the Eagles to only 12 yards rushing in the first half and allowed minus 11 in the second half.
            This would be Hazelwood's second title in only two playoff appearances as they also won the championship in 1970. Hokes Bluff was making their first title game appearance in their very first time to even make the playoffs.
