CHICO, Calif. - Four Northern Section Champions are gearing up for the CIF State Playoffs. 

Sutter is the only Northern Section team to play Friday. The Huskies take on San Marin at River Valley HS in Division 5-AA Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Sutter won its 14th section title with a 34-31 overtime win over Paradise. 

Three local teams take the field on Saturday.

In Division 5-A, U-Prep plays at Sacred Heart Prep on Dec. 4 at 1 pm. The Panthers begin their quest for a state championship less than two weeks after U-Prep Volleyball won its first-ever state title. U-Prep beat Pierce 27-7 in the Division IV championship. 

Chico and Sacred Heart Cathedral battle it out in Division 4-A. That game will be played at Kezar Stadium in San Francisco on Dec. 4 at 6 p.m.

The Panthers are riding the momentum from their first section title win since 1990. They came back to win the Northern Section Division II Championship after trailing Foothill by 10 in the fourth quarter. 

Fall River is the only Northern Section team to host a state playoff game. The undefeated Bulldogs face Le Grand on Dec. 4 at 3 p.m.

Tickets for all CIF playoff games can be purchased at this link.

Winners of the Regional Football Championship games advance to the CIF State Championship games on Dec. 11. Chico, Sutter, U-Prep and Fall River will all host if they win.
