4A: Sheridan vs. Natrona County

After coming up short the past two years, this is the year Natrona County breaks through and knocks off the three-time defending state champs.

This one's a heck of a lot closer than the regular-season meeting at Cheney Alumni Field but the outcome remains the same. Natrona County at last, once again.

3A: Star Valley vs. Torrington

Torrington has been both good and lucky this season, but Star Valley is finally healthy and the Braves are ready to put it all together.

A lot has been said about Star Valley's schedule and for good reason. Fate has favored Torrington lately so I think they ride it out to a championship.

2A: Mountain View vs. Buffalo

These teams have been on a collision course all season. Buffalo might be the slight favorite, but I'm taking Mountain View in a coin flip.

Mountain View has the championship experience and tenacious defense that it takes to repeat as champions.

1A/11-man: Big Horn vs. Cokeville

If any team is going to slow down the Big Horn offense, it's Cokeville. Not this time, though, the Rams simply have too many weapons.

Cokeville is an incredibly talented team that could very well win this game. But this has been years in the making and I don't see Big Horn letting it slip away.

1A/6-man: Farson vs. Burlington

The third time is the charm for Farson, which will take advantage of every Burlington mistake and win the program's first state title.

Farson is the favorite for a reason and they have experience in Laramie. Burlington comes back to make it close but the initial shock is too much to overcome.
