The Friday champs have already been crowned, leaving only two games left in the 2011 high school football season. Both games should be outstanding.

4A: Bemidji (12-0) vs. Rocori (11-1)
Nobody expected either team to be playing in this game. Bemidji took it personally that most experts picked Mankato West to crush them in last week's state semifinal game. This week the Lumberjacks are favored over Rocori, which is looking for it's first state championship.

3A: St. Croix Lutheran (13-0) vs. Fairmont (12-1)
This is classic game waiting to happen. Fairmont employs a balanced offensive attack while the Crusaders choose to jam the ball down their opponents throat with a dominant rushing attack. Neither team has won a state title.
