Ubly vs Ottawa Lake Whiteford (Bally Sports Detroit, 10am)

Whiteford wants to run the same magic campaign they did five years ago when they were undefeated all the way to the state title. After winning another TCC regular season title, the Bobcats blasted through playoff contention averaging 50.5 points per game.

Two years after losing to Centerville in the state title game, Ubly returns to fix it. They went undefeated for the second season in a row and allowed double figures only twice this postseason.


Grand Rapids Forest Hills Central vs. Warren De La Salle (Bally Sports Detroit, 1 p.m.)

De La Salle, the reigning D2 champions, return to Ford Field for a third straight season and hope to win a fourth state title since 2014. The Pilots took care of their opponents on the road to Detroit, averaging 7.25 points per game

Despite all the regular season successes, this is Forest Hills Central’s first appearance in a state championship game since losing to Harrison in a Class A title game in 1994. This Rangers team has been successful this year, beating Mona Shores and Dexter on their way to Friday.


Negaunee vs. Grand Rapids West Catholic (Bally Sports Detroit, 4:30 p.m.)

This is West Catholic’s first attempt at glory in D6 since they moved up from D5. The Falcons have won five championships in a row in D5 and are hoping to clinch their first title in five years.

This is the farthest Negaunee score in a football season since the 2002 state championship. In 2022, the Miners were undefeated in the regular season for the first time since 2010, with the team recording two shutdowns in their first two playoff games before pulling out nail biters against Gladstone and Reed City.


Grand Rapids South Christian vs. Goodrich (NFHS Network, 7:30 p.m.)

Since the 2014 state championship, South Christian has been unable to find a way around the hump. They certainly did, and then some this season, as the Sailors defeated the superpower at Grand Rapids Catholic Central before claiming the OK-Gold title, and knocked over Edwardsburg for a ticket to Ford Field.

The stars aligned for Goodrich. The team, which has not progressed beyond the pre-district round since 2012, won 12 games in a row, allowing double figures only four times down, and their offensive provided enough power to send the Martians to Detroit.

Traverse City St. francis vs. Jackson Lumen Christi (Bally Sports Detroit, 10am)

After losing in the state semifinals last year, St. Francis is fiercely eyeing his first D7 championship since 2009. They overcame the demons of their 2020 Finals defeat by beating New Lothrop last week, using an offense that averaged over 52 points in their four playoff wins.

It’s been four years since Lumen Christi ended a run of three titles in a row in D6. They came close to winning D7 in 2019, losing to Pewamo-Westfalia. This is the Titans’ second chance at a championship since relegation, and I hope their defense can slow down the Gladiators on Saturday.


Caledonia vs. Belleville (Bally Sports Detroit, 1 p.m.)

In a matchup many are looking forward to, the defending D1 champions and the state’s No. 1 unanimous team this season will take on a team from West Michigan in uncharted territory.

Belleville has made at least the final four in each of the last five seasons before winning its first championship in 2021. Starting last season, the Tigers have won 24 straight games, including a 29-28 win over Detroit Cass Tech last Friday.

Before last year, Caledonia recorded five consecutive defeats. However, after losing in the 2021 Regional Finals, the Fighting Scots showed their maturity this season as they bounced back from a regular season loss to Rockford by defeating the Rams in the District Finals, defeating Grand Ledge and Clarkston. to Ford Field. Caledonia has a chance to win its first state title since they did it in D3 in 2005.


Gladwin vs. Frankenmuth (Bally Sports Detroit, 4:30 p.m.)

Gladwin arrives in Detroit for his first state championship game in the show’s history. After years of mediocrity, the Flying G’s posted another undefeated regular season this year and earned a ticket to Ford Field by defeating the three-time defending state champion at Grand Rapids Catholic Central last week.

This is Frankenmuth’s first chance at a state title since losing to the GRCC two years ago. The Eagles dominated this season, recording five shutdowns this season, including a 38-0 win over Detroit Country Day in the semifinals last Saturday. Frankenmuth hasn’t posted a double-digit defensive tally since September.


Muskegon vs. Detroit Martin Luther King (Bally Sports Detroit, 7:30 p.m.)

Detroit MLK is another team hoping to defend their title on Saturday. While it wasn’t quite as beautiful a season for the Crusaders compared to the 2021 championship season, they picked it up post-season, surpassing the competition to make it to Ford Field for the sixth time in the last eight years.

Muskegon has been one of the best schools in western Michigan for nearly two decades. Since 2004, the Big Reds have reached the D2 or D3 title game 11 times, but won only four times. Muskegon is looking to win his first championship since defeating Harrison five years ago.

One of Muskegon’s losses was in the 2018 D3 Finals as MLK defeated the Big Reds to win 41-25.
