Penns Valley earned the No. 5 seed in the 12-team Class AA duals.

The Rams meet No. 12 Penn Cambria at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Juniata. The winner faces fourth-seeded Juniata at 8 p.m. Penns Valley defeated Juniata 42-27 earlier this month.

The Class AA semifinals and finals are next Saturday morning and afternoon at Tyrone. West Branch, Huntingdon and Mount Union are the top three seeds.
