This is a rematch of a game that the Cadets won 49-35 on September 29th. However, the Vikings have come a long way since then, having won their last six games.
The Vikings have a high-powered offense, averaging 42.7 points per game. They are led by senior quarterback Brady Carlton, who has thrown for over 2,500 yards and 30 touchdowns this season. Carlton is also a threat on the ground, rushing for over 500 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The Cadets have an equally high-powered offense, averaging 43.8 points per game. They are led by senior running back Landyn Collins, who has rushed for over 1,500 yards and 25 touchdowns this season. The Cadets also have a solid passing attack, led by senior quarterback Gabe Johnson.
Both defenses are playing at a high level, with Howell allowing just 27.3 points per game and Christian Brothers allowing just 26.7 points per game.
This is sure to be a close game between two evenly matched teams. The Vikings will need to find a way to slow down the Cadets’ running game and force turnovers. The Cadets will need to protect the football and capitalize on their scoring opportunities.

Both teams are evenly matched, but I am giving the edge to Christian Brothers due to their home field advantage and their experience in close games. I predict that the Cadets will win a close game, 42-38.
