USA TODAY Super 25 Week 14 Preview: No. 1 Mater Dei, No. 5 Servite playing for championship


No. 1 Mater Dei and No. 5 Servite will meet Friday night for the second time this season.

This time, a section championship will be on the line.

Mater Dei took Servite down during the regular season, but Servite played the Monarchs harder than anyone up until their 21-16 win over Centennial last weekend. Servite is playing its best football of the season right now after beating St. John Bosco by 19 points to advance to the CIF Southern Section Division I title game.

Plenty will be on the line for USA TODAY Super 25 teams outside of California as well. No. 3 Collins Hill is set for a monster matchup with Lowndes and Miami quarterback commit Jacurri Brown, while the latest chapter of one of high school football’s best rivalries will be written when No. 4 Bergen Catholic and Don Bosco Prep play for a championship.

With all of that being said, let’s take a look at what is in store for each team in the USA TODAY Sports Super 25 during the 14th weekend of the 2021 high school football season.
