Battle of unbeatens: Maple Grove football ready to battle Rosemount in 6A Prep Bowl

With U.S. Bank Stadium busy Thursday night hosting the Vikings-Patriots game and not enough turnaround time, the state title football games are pushed back a week.

In other words, the seven high school Prep Bowl games will be Dec. 2-3.

On Friday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m., it’ll be unbeaten Maple Grove vs. unbeaten Rosemount for the 6A (biggest schools) state championship.

We attended a Crimson practice this week and spoke with senior RB/LB Tanner Albeck, QB Jacob Kilzer, and coach Matt Lombardi.

Maple Grove lost in the 6A title game last year to Lakeville South, and have been motivated ever since to get back and win it. The Crimson avenged that loss by beating Lakeville South in the semifinals.
