Ennis LionsMike Says: These schools are a combined 5-0 in championship games so someones streak is going to end. Cedar Park won the 2012 title and was our pre-season pick to be in the Division I Championship game. They started off slowly with a 4-3 record though and dropped in our rankings. They have now had 8 straight impressive wins a row to get here. Ennis has not been to a championship game since 2004 but they are looking to go 5-0 in title games. The LIONS win it in a close one 30-28!!

Ennis LionsChris Says: Okay, I want to know where all my Ennis haters are now.  Yeah, we had them as the State Champion in the preseason and yes, the did drop a couple at the start of the season (to some excellent teams) and it seemed like everyone gave up on them.  Since that time they've done nothing but win (including beating one of the teams they lost to at the start - Mansfield Timberview.)  Yes, Cedar Park is a tough team and deserves to be here, but Ennis feels more like a team of destiny this year.  LIONS win 28-24!!

Who do you think wins?
