Oceanside must stop Folsom quarterback Jake Browning on Friday in Division I game

At StubHub Center

Friday

Division I

Folsom (15-0) vs. Oceanside (14-0), 8 p.m. (Time Warner Cable, Channel 84): Veteran Coach John Carroll of Oceanside will need to come up with an innovative plan on defense to stop quarterback Jake Browning, who has 85 touchdown passes this season and 223 in his career. Josh Bernard, a running back-linebacker, is Oceanside's best player. The pick: Folsom.

Division IV

Modesto Central Catholic (11-3) vs. San Juan Capistrano St. Margaret's (15-0), 4 p.m. (TWC, Channel 84): Oscar Gomez, with 2,337 yards rushing and 37 touchdowns, leads St. Margaret's. Justin Rice gained 303 yards in 29 carries during last week's regional win for Central Catholic. St. Margaret's also has a weapon in kicker Charlie Beall, who's 10 of 12 on field goals. The pick: St. Margaret's.

Saturday

Open Division

Concord De La Salle (13-0) vs. Corona Centennial (12-2), 8 p.m. (TWC SportsNet): Just when the movie about former De La Salle Coach Bob Ladouceur, "When the Game Stands Tall," is available on Blu-Ray, the Spartans are playing in another championship game. They have two junior running backs, Antoine Custer and Andrew Hernandez, with more than 1,600 yards rushing. Centennial fears no one. The Huskies have already played the likes of Bishop Gorman and St. John Bosco. Their no-huddle offense is capable of scoring points quickly, and getting back running back J.J. Taylor from injury adds to their firepower. The pick: Centennial.

Division II

Concord Clayton Valley (15-0) vs. Redlands East Valley (14-1), 4 p.m. (TWC SportsNet): Clayton Valley has rushed for more than 6,600 yards. That's the challenge facing Redlands East Valley, which relies on sophomore quarterback Armando Herrera to get the ball to his playmakers, led by Oregon-bound Malik Lovette. The pick: Clayton Valley.

Division III

Moraga Campolindo (15-0) vs. Lakeside El Capitan (14-0), noon (TWC SportsNet): Campolindo quarterback Jack Stephens passed for 302 yards and three touchdowns in a regional victory. El Capitan had a strong defensive effort in its 41-0 regional win over Paso Robles. The pick: El Capitan.
