About South Fayette. The Lions (15-0), with a spread scheme, average 45.1 points. . . . Junior Brett Brumbaugh has completed 228 of 371 passes for 3,611 yards and 38 touchdowns, with seven interceptions. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound junior has scholarship offers from Akron and Temple. . . . Brumbaugh's No. 1 target is senior wideout Justin Watson, a Penn recruit with 62 catches for 1,402 yards and 20 scores. . . .. An undersized offensive line is anchored by center Spencer Girman (5-11, 205) and tackles Ben Berkovitz (6-2, 225) and Anthony Davidson (6-2, 215).

About Imhotep. The Panthers (12-2) have scored 40 or more points in 11 of 14 outings. . . . Imhotep can turn to three swift ballcarriers: Nasir Bonner, Mike Waters, and Tyliek Raynor. . . . Andre Dreuitt-Parks, a third-year starter, has completed 78 of 136 throws for 1,503 yards and 24 TDs. . . . WR Denniston Moore has 36 catches for 779 yards and 13 scores. . . . An imposing offensive line is composed of center Gordon Thomas (6-0, 305), guards John Carlo Valentine (6-4, 285) and Aaron Ruff (6-5, 280), tackles Taleem Muhammad (6-6, 300) and Antoine Williams (6-3, 280), and tight end Naseir Upshur (6-3, 225). Ruff is headed to Temple.

Analysis. The speed-laden Panthers score five times, and their bend-but-don't-break defense holds Brumbaugh and Co. to a pair of TDs.

Pick. Imhotep, 33-14.
