 The table is set and the game is just hours away from being played. St. Edward will be taking on Huber Heights Wayne for the Division I state title on Saturday at 3 p.m.

The game is being played at Ohio Stadium, 411 Woody Hayes Drive, Columbus. 

St. Edwards comes in with a 12-2 record and coming of possibly their best win this year, defeating Hudson 42-14.

Eagles running back Cole Gest has rushed for 1,696 yards and 23 touchdowns this season. The real strength of the Eagles team is their defense, the most points they have given up all year was 21 when they played Elder in week 4. 

St. Edward team has 25 interceptions, leading that charge is Shaun Crawford and Andrew Dowell who each have seven. 

Wayne comes into the game with a 13-1 record after defeating Archbishop Moeller 29-22 last week. 

The Warriors wide receivers will give the Eagles a challenge, 6-foot-7 Ahmad Wagner will cause a huge mismatch. Just like the offense the strength of the defense is the Warriors outside, leading that side of the ball is Michigan commit Tyree Kinnel. 

St. Edward is seeking their second state title, first one was in 2010.
