CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Miller 54, Austin LBJ 59 (FINAL) 

The best season for Miller in 57 years comes to an end as LBJ rallies in the 4th to advance to the state semis. 

Highlights tonight on KIII 3 News at 10 PM after college football. 

The Miller Buccaneers made their first appearance in the state quarterfinals since 1963 this afternoon.

As expected, the Bucs found themselves in a shootout with Austin LBJ. Both teams exchanged touchdowns in the first half. 

Miller would grab the lead going into the fourth quarter, but LBJ's defense would get some stops and go on to win 59-54 to advance to the state semifinal.
