It's state football semifinal weekend in Minnesota, with winners advancing to the Prep Bowl championships next weekend at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Becker will face Stewartville tonight in one of the Class 4A semifinals. Pierz will go up against Tri-City United in one of the two Class 3A semis. Here are the brackets, times, and locations:

A win by both Becker and ROCORI this weekend would see the Bulldogs and Spartans face each other next Saturday afternoon at TCF Bank Stadium for the Class AAAA State Championship, and that would be cool.

Go Bulldogs, Pioneers & Spartans!
