All of the 2019 Super Bowl matchups are set, but the focus this week is on the Thanksgiving Day rivalries.
Massachusetts Top 10 No. 1 Catholic Memorial and No. 2 St. John’s Prep are ready to play for the Division 1 title at Gillette Stadium on December 7, but before that they have two big 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.
The Division 3 Super Bowl will feature No. 4 Central High of Springfield and No. 7 Duxbury. Springfield doesn’t have a Thanksgiving Day game, but Duxbury will play Marshfield on Turkey Day in the 34th renewal of the holiday matchup.
