In the history of Utah high school football, there has never been a season with four undefeated state champions. That could all change Friday at Rice-Eccles Stadium.

A week after Duchesne capped a perfect season in Class 1A, top-ranked teams Lone Peak, Logan and Hurricane are hoping for similar success on what figures to be a fantastic day of championship games at the U.

There have been 558 high school football games this year, but the last three could be among the best.

Friday's festivities get under way at 11 a.m. with No. 1 Logan facing No. 2 East.

In the 5A final at 2:30 p.m., both Lone Peak and Fremont are hoping to avoid a letdown after two of the most intense semifinal games in recent memory.

In the 3A nightcap at 6:30 p.m., Hurricane and Desert Hills are both gunning for their first state titles as well.

Here are previews of all three games:

5A football finals: High-powered Knights face title-hungry pack of Silver Wolves

4A football finals: Grizzlies get a crack at a healthy Leopards squad in title game

3A football finals: 'Everything is different' as Tigers, Thunder meet again
