CHICO, Calif. -- The 14 and under Chico Panthers football team is gearing up for the Football Championship Series in Las Vegas this weekend.
The Panthers are 24-0 across two seasons and most recently won their second straight Nor-Cal State title.
The Panthers earned the No.4 spot on the FCS Hot Teams list, but plan to come out on top this weekend.
"It’s just a different opponent," said assistant coach Kyseasn Green. "Just something different from what they played in the regular season, so that's [the only challenge. But I'm pretty sure once we strap on and after that first kick-off, our guys should be ready to play and go back to balling like they do every season."
