CIF-SS Playoff Predictions

We pick who we think will win each of the 13 divisions in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs...

No section will have a bigger impact on the state bowl games than the Southern Section, where it's still safe to say that all five Southern California spots could be filled by a Southern Section team.

The Pac-5 title will have the biggest bearing, where the Open or D-I  berth will likely be decided, while the Northern and Inland Divisions are hoping for some upsets to open the door for the Open Division, but worst case, the favorites in those two divisions will likely battle it out for the D-I spot.  Off the field, of course.  And no playoff bracket will be more competitive in the entire state than the Pac-5, where Servite is looking for a three-peat in the division and their third straight trip to the state bowl game.

Here's a look at the CIF-SS playoffs.
