The 53-minute show opens with a clip from Mater Dei coach Bruce Rollinson, who shares some of the final words of wisdom he will tell his players before they take the field.

As always, Albano and Barajas review last week's game by handing out their grades and reviewing key stats  (3:59 mark)

Defense comparisons DL, LB, secondary (30:03)

Special team comparison (35:30)

Intangible: Big-game experience (39:23)
