What a night of high school football last night as 13 teams punched their ticket to next week’s Prep Classic in the Ceasars Superdome.

For the first time in 67 years Opelousas will play for a state championship in football as the 12th seeded Tigers upset top seeded North Desoto 28-20.

Cecilia will play for a state title in football for the first time in 28 years as the Bulldogs knocked off Northwest 55-18. Cecilia will play its district rival Opelousas on Friday afternoon.

St. Charles Catholic will play in a state championship game for a fifth consecutive season after beating University High 10 to seven in overtime.

Union Parish knocked off Jena and will play St. James for a state championship. It’s the fourth straight year the Farmers have made it to the Prep Classic.

Haynesville will make its 26th state title appearance after beating Logansport and they’ll play Oak Grove on Thursday night.

The betting odds have LSU’s Jayden Daniels as the favorite to win the Heisman Trophy after last night’s Pac-12 championship game. Washington defeated Oregon 34-31 and Ducks quarterback Bo Nix threw three touchdown passes, but he only threw for 239 yards in a second loss to the Huskies this season. If Nix and the Ducks won, the former Auburn quarterback might have been the favorite to win the Heisman.

Tulane is looking to lock up a second straight American Athletic Conference Championship today as they host S-M-U. A win for the Green Wave and they could find themselves in a New Year’s Six Bowl.

The Ragin Cajuns are reportedly headed to the New Orleans Bowl and will play Jacksonsville State on December 16th. LSU will find out its bowl destination and opponent tomorrow. The Tigers are expected to play in Tampa, possibly against Notre Dame.

The Saints host the Lions on Sunday. Four starters out for New Orleans with injuries and defensive end Cam Jordan is questionable. Kick-off Sunday is at noon.
