Proving that they are the VCU of BGN's Greatest Football Movie Of All Time tournament, #5 seed The Replacements won its third upset in a row to advance to the final four. It defeated Any Given Sunday. Next up for Keanu and crew is a matchup with Marky Mark and Invincible in the final four.
Today, we decide who will join them in the Final Four in a matchup of movies based on true stories.
Remember Theis one of our four #1 seeds. It stars Denzel Washington and tells the true story of a newly appointed African-American coach and his high school team on their first season as a racially integrated unit. It's a great story with really good football action and lots of really great motivational speeches from Denzel... because what is a great football movie without a good motivational speech?
Friday Night Lights is based on H.G. Bissinger's book, which profiled the economically depressed town of Odessa, Texas and their heroic high school football team, The Permian High Panthers. By the way, we're talking about the movie here not the TV show.
