Describing dramatic sporting events as instant classics is probably overdone, but every now and again you see a game in which there's no other way to describe it. 

That's what fans got Friday night on the gridiron as Elk River and Buffalo tangled in a game that lit up the scoreboard with 150 combined points, which is likely the most points scored in a single game in state history. 

Elk River led 44-26 at halftime and 64-48 at end of the third quarter. 

Some of the individual stats are mind-boggling, especially the 636 rushing yards the Elks piled up on the night, including three players eclipsing 100 yards, including a game high 268 yards on 17 carries for Elk River's Adam Nelson

The head coach of Buffalo is former Vikings quarterback Todd Bouman, and his son, Aidan Bouman completed 40-of-55 passes for 542 yards, 8 touchdowns and no interceptions. 

The state record for passing yards in a game is 555, set in 2001 by Hill-Murray's Brian Kaufman. 

Speaking of state records, Buffalo wide receiver Jack Munsterteiger tied the record for most receptions in a game with 19. He finished with 288 receiving yards and two touchdowns. 

Buffalo's Treyton Welch also had a huge night with 11 catches for 159 yards and 4 touchdowns.
