Favorite: Aliquippa could win a third consecutive title behind RB/DBs Dravon Henry and Terry Swanson, who have 1,900 rushing yards.

Challengers: Behind 1,900-yard passer Brett Brumbaugh and Penn WR recruit Justin Watson, South Fayette has the highest-scoring offense in the WPIAL (49.9 ppg). Beaver Falls' only loss included a disputed TD to Aliquippa in Week 8 (34-28). Mt. Pleasant RB Tyler Mellors ranks seventh with 1,370 yards. Kittanning finished unbeaten after a 28-27 victory over Shady Side Academy. Quaker Valley's only conference loss was to South Fayette.

Don't overlook: Washington lost its star RB to injury, fought two eligibility cases and needed PIAA help to enter the playoffs. Yet its only on-field loss was to Mt. Pleasant.

Prediction: Aliquippa over South Fayette
