Bushland, Canadian favored to win this week

If this week's Harris Ratings are correct, Bushland will reach the Class 2A Division II state championship game and Canadian will capture its third consecutive state title.
The Falcons are 21-point favorites to get past Callisburg. But, hey, they were a 30-point favorite last week against Crane and won only by a 35-28 margin.
Canadian is a 7-point pick to beat Goldthwaite for the 1A Division I title this week and join Amarillo High (1934-36) as the only Panhandle-area football team to win three straight state titles.
Stratford, which will be playing in its 43rd playoff game this decade, is a 3-point underdog vs. Albany. The Elks beat Albany in last year's state semifinals, but that was then and this is now.
All three games promise to be exciting and it's a shame I can't cover all of them. I will do the Stratford-Albany game Friday at Frenship and the Bushland-Callisburg game Saturday at Wichita Falls.
