I don't know that the Northern schools get overlooked. I think the papers report on the teams that are in their areas. Everyone knows how good Logan, Mountain Crest, Fremont, davis and Northridge have been. This Syracuse team is for real. Good, quick athletes that fulfill their assignments. Syracuse is missing their QB, and Jordan is missing their Middle Backer, so the match-up is a good one. Jordan's offensive line will be the deciding factor in the game; can they block that tough defense. I'll be watching the trenches for sure.

I agree with most of what you said gravedigger72 but not with the evenly matched part, A QB is not the same as a Middle backer. Jordan has a bigger advantage, but i don't really care. Syracuse does its best when they are the underdog. Just look at all of the predictions that say Syracuse is going to loose. Alta this year and last year, Bingham this year. this will be a good game, i just hope that Syracuse gets it. It would be so cool if they have a perfect season.

Sorry Syracuse but your run is over. Jordan is too big and skilled for you to hang with. I have watched both teams play and Jordan has a huge size advantage. I don't see this game being close. I was hoping Bingham would have won so we could have a great championship game. Syracuse congrats on a good year, but your playing the big boys now.

"Big boys now"?

Are you kidding me? Who's to say they won't make a great game? They beat the team who would supposedly make a great game. Show some respect. Geez...

Whats with all the hate, Syracuse is talented. They may not be able to stop the run completly but if it comes down to it, The D will stop them.

Examples against big teams where the defense stepped to make sure that the Titans win.
Northride: Syracuse stoped them on the 2 yard line to make sure that it didn't get tied.
Alta: This was more of stoping the throw but syracuse still stepped up big at the end to make sure alta didn't tie.
Bingham: They stoped them on 4th and 2 to make sure that the drive was over and to make sure that Syracuse is going in to the finals.

After the game, jordan may be the winner but the defense will fight hard.
