The first of two games in the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series is set. Two-time defending Arizona state champ Centennial will play Washington 3A state champ Eastside Catholic on December 22 at Centennial High in Peoria, Arizona.
Centennial has spent the year climbing the High School Football America 100 national rankings, while Eastside just cracked the HSFA 100 at No. 99 this week.
The other GEICO Bowl Game should be announced within the week.
Last year, St. Frances (Maryland) beat Bingham (Utah) 41-3 and Chandler (Arizona) beat Miami’s Northwestern 55-20.
