As is our tradition, we go through each of the 13 upcoming CIF state football championship games and provide a predicted final score. We think a lot of NorCal teams will be successful on the road and perhaps one of the biggest underdogs is team with six state titles in the last seven years.
With one giant out of the way, St. John Bosco of Bellflower will try to slay another and avenge earlier loss in CIF Southern Section Division I final on Saturday against Mater Dei. With the top of the board seemingly set up, the upper half gets shaken up due to our insertion of Sanger from...

We’ll go for it again after getting the winner correct in nine of the 10 regional championship games from last weekend. To us, it looks like the predicted winner in three of the games are fairly easy to choose. We’ll have offensive, defensive and underclass players of the game posted on this site after each […]
