- Lansing Sexton (12-0) vs. Detroit Country Day (8-4), Saturday, 1 p.m. at Fenton (Division 4): The Big Reds look to make amends for their state semifinal loss a year ago, a 12-7 loss to eventual state champion Marine City. Detroit Country Day's season also came to a close last year courtesy of Marine City: The Yellow Jackets lost 33-28 to Marine City in the regional final.
The winner of Saturday's game punches their ticket to Ford Field for the state championship game. Sexton hasn't appeared in a state title game since the current playoff format was adopted in 1999. The Big Reds also have never won more than 12 games in a season, a school record they set last year.
