Semi-Final #2:

It's unfortunate that for a 2nd straight year the best two remaining teams on paper have to meet in a game not with the state championship on the line. The winner of #3 Cass Tech and #8 West Bloomfield will feel like a state champion when the clock hits 00:00 on Saturday at Troy Athens, but there will still be at least 48 minutes to play for the winning team when they play Clarkston or Catholic Central at 1 pm the following Saturday at Ford Field. These two teams have had the toughest path in getting to this week. Cass Tech had to win at Fordson and #10 Chippewa Valley, while West Bloomfield had to meet neighbors, Bloomfield Hills in pre-districts and then won on the road at #6 Waterford Mott and at #4 Eisenhower. The Quarterback play of the two MAC commits will be key, Aaron Jackson (EMU) for Cass Tech and Bryce Veasley (BGSU) for West Bloomfield.

Prediction: Cass Tech 32-28

Explanation: Both teams have so many playmakers and game-changers that points will be scored and momentum will swing like a pendulum.
