West St. John (8-3) at Vermilion Catholic (10-1) — A rematch of last year’s classic state semifinal. That one was a shootout and this one promises more of the same, perhaps; both teams feature the no-huddle and push the offensive tempo.

 Riverside (6-5) at John Curtis (11-0) —  The Rebels are a different team than the one that lost to Curtis 59-0 in a Sept. 28 district matchup. Riverside found its offense weeks ago and its defense has delivered in two playoff wins. But Curtis is ranked No. 1 in the nation by Rivals for a reason.
