Favorite: Central Catholic has shut out six of nine opponents and leads Quad-A in scoring (45.0 ppg) with QB J.J. Cosentino, a Florida State recruit.

Challengers: Upper St. Clair, runner-up in 2012, has a defense with six shutouts and Pitt recruit Rori Blair at DE. QB David Queen and FB Mikell Moore have revived McKeesport's option offense with 24 TDs. Woodland Hills has won seven straight since losses to USC and McKeesport the first two weeks of the season. Seneca Valley's only loss was to Central Catholic (42-0). North Allegheny is the three-time defending champion but will face No. 8 Bethel Park in the first round on the road. No. 6 Penn-Trafford defeated Gateway and Hempfield the past two weeks.

Don't overlook: Gateway has elite players with at least five Division I recruits, but that talent hasn't always led to wins.

Prediction: Central Catholic over USC
