Which teams will be playing next week?

Can Stratford, Canadian, Bushland and Follett advance to next week's round of high school playoffs?
If the Harris Ratings are accurate this week, Canadian and Bushland will advance by big margins. The Wildcats were a 27-point favorite over Haskell while the Falcons are favored by 30 over Crane.
Stratford is a pickum in its game against unbeaten New Deal while Follett was a touchdown underdog against Borden County according to sixmanfootball.com.
Stratford and Canadian won state titles a year ago so I think each will advance to next week's round. Bushland is making its deepest playoff run and I think the Falcons will move on to next week's state semifinals.
Follett also played for the state title a year ago, and I look for them to get back to the title game.
It should be another busy week next week. I sure hope so.

I cannot believe this game was postponed due to weather conditions. I played RB for the 1999 childress team that played crane in the quarterfinals and we knew what kind of weather was coming to Lowry Field in Lubbock but we still played in about 13 degree weather, horrible wind, sleet and snow. Be men and play the game. Couldnt believe that when i read it in the paper.
