New Braunfels Canyon (10-1) finished the 2020 UIL high school football regular season with an identical UIL 12-5A Division I district record as Seguin and Dripping Springs and earned the opportunity to host UIL 11-5A Division I fourth-place finisher Pflugerville (5-4) in a UIL 5A Division I Region III bi-district playoff game at its on-campus Cougar Stadium on Thursday night. The Cougars took advantage of the opportunity, hung on for a 20-17 win and advanced to next week's UIL 5A Division I Region III area round playoff meeting with Friday's Baytown Lee/Katy Paetow winner.
