Favorite: Defending champion West Allegheny remains unbeaten, but Thomas Jefferson has been more dominant. The Jaguars have LB/QB Chase Winovich, a Michigan recruit, and strong lines.

Challengers: West Allegheny RBs Chayse Dillon and Tory Delmonico, who have 1,300 yards, could return to Heinz Field. Central Valley came closest to beating the Parkway champion with a 13-7 loss in Week 5. Mars and 1,400-yard rusher Josh Schultheis have not lost since Week 1, when Greater Allegheny co-champion Franklin Regional won 20-13. West Mifflin has WPIAL leading rusher Jimmy Wheeler (2,022 yards).

Don't overlook: New Castle and Ohio State recruit Malik Hooker came within a TD of West Allegheny in Week 7.

Prediction: Thomas Jefferson over West Allegheny
