State College fans are going to have to do a little traveling if they want to see the Little Lions try to make the PIAA Class AAAA quarterfinals.
The District 6/9 champion Little Lions (5-6) will face District 8/10 champion Erie McDowell (7-4) on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Clarion University.
The Little Lions advanced with a 29-7 rout of DuBois on Friday. Jordan Misher rushed for 190 yards and three scores and the State College defense forced five turnovers from the Beavers, who had been averaging nearly 50 points per game.
McDowell also dominated, rolling to a 35-6 triumph against Brashear on Saturday. McDowell quarterback Jake Tarasovitch had one touchdown running, passing and receiving.
Never miss a local story.
The winner will face the WPIAL champion in the PIAA quarterfinals. Pine Richland and Central Catholic will meet in the WPIAL title game.
