Football finals: This is it, folks

A lot of people are suggesting that last week's state semifinals were as exciting as any in a long, long time. Nine of the 16 games were decided by a touchdown or less and two in overtime. We can only hope this week's finals are half as compelling.
With all those close calls, it was a hard week to predict winners. I went 11-5.
This week, well, it's a whole new week. Let's see if we can get this thing right.

Division 1
Detroit Catholic Central 20, Detroit Cass Tech 13 (Preview)

Division 2
Birmingham Brother Rice 28, Lowell 27 (Preview)

Division 3
Orchard Lake St. Mary's 30, Mt. Pleasant 23 (Preview)

Division 4

Division 5

Division 6
Ithaca 27, Constantine 21

Division 7

Best of luck to all the teams for making it all the way to Ford Field.
