MATCHUP

St. Xavier (Cincinnati) at Colerain (Cincinnati)

When: 9/6, 7 p.m.

Analysis: These battles between Cincinnati rivals are fierce. In eight matchups over the last four years, four have gone into overtime and six have been decided by one possession. Colerain has ended on top more often than not, going 6-2 against the Bombers in that span.

Now, the teams are in very different places. Colerain went 14-1 last year and played in the championship game; St. Xavier finished 5-6. But even that regular-season matchup was brutal, with Colerain eking out a 14-12 win. This rivalry is as good as it gets.
