The Rocori football team plays Bemidji Saturday at 3pm in the Class 4A State Championship game at the Prep Bowl at the Metrodome, pregame on WJON at 2:45 with Ty James and Chris Chapman.  Rocori head football coach Mike Rowe is excited about playing the state championship but is confident in their defense despite facing a very dangerous Bemidji offense.  Rowe says the cities of Cold Spring, Rockville and Richmond are buzzing with anticipation for the game Saturday.  Rowe points out that Bemidji also needs to stop a very tough Rocori offense.

The Spartans are coming off a 37-35 win over Hill Murray last Saturday.
