Day two of the Prep Bowl Championships concluded on Saturday at U.S. Bank Stadium with three teams – Elk River, Rochester Lourdes and Minneapolis North – claiming state championships.

  • Minneapolis North 30 Rushford-Peterson 14
  • Rochester Lourdes 42 St. Croix Lutheran 35
  • Elk River 42 Spring Lake Park 14

For Minneapolis North, the 30-14 win over Rushford-Peterson is the school's first championship. They also became the third Minneapolis City Conference team to win a football state title since 1977.

Rochester Lourdes pulled off a miraculous play with under a minute to go, securing their 42-35 win. On 3rd and 22, the team pulled off two laterals that eventually set up the game-winning touchdown.

Elk River put a bow on their undefeated season (13-0) with a 42-14 win. It's the Elk's first state title in their 125 years of high school football.
