The Division 1 Super Bowl is set and we will get a No. 1 vs. No. 2 Part II. Top-ranked Catholic Memorial will play No. 2 St. John’s Prep for the Division 1 state championship on December 7. Last year, Prep beat CM 40-22 for the D1 Super Bowl title.
In mid-October, during their regular season matchup, Catholic Memorial beat SJP 34-32. However, before we get to the state championship game, both schools have their annual Thanksgiving rivalry games.
Catholic Memorial plays BC High. CM can wrap-up the Catholic Conference championship and the Pumpkin Trophy with a victory over the Eagles. BC High leads the all-time Thanksgiving series 38-18-1
Prep has struggled recently against Xaverian Brothers in their Thanksgiving Day rivalry that began in 1992 with the winner taking the Brother William Drinan, C.F.X. Trophy. Xaverian has won six straight Turkey Day games.
Last year, Xaverian beat Prep 14-12 in a game that was played at Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox.
