The game of the year in the Trinity League, and perhaps for Southern California prep football, is finally here.

So be sure to listen to an extended preview from Dan Albano of and insider Scott Barajas of the Mater Dei-St. John Bosco game Friday at Cerritos College.

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)

Offensive skill comparisons (22:14): QB, WR, RB

OL comparison (26:34)

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

Special team comparison (35:30)

Intangible: Big-game experience (39:23)

Predictions: Albano (43:27); Barajas (43:53)

The second-year podcast ends with a brief preview, predictions for the Servite-Orange Lutheran (46.50) and JSerra-Santa Margarita (48:22) games.
