The Class 5A football championship game is Saturday in Denver, matching Cherry Creek and Columbine.

Here's a breakdown of the game:

Game notes:

  • The two teams have not met this season. They last met in the semifinals last season, a 10-7 Cherry Creek win.

  • That matchup was their eighth postseason meeting, according to the Colorado Preps playoff database. This will be their ninth. They are 4-4 against one another in the playoffs. That includes the 1999 title game, which Columbine won 21-14.

  • Coaches Dave Logan and Andy Lowry have once before in a championship game: Lowry and Columbine beat Logan and Mullen in 2006, 13-10.

  • This will be Cherry Creek's 18th state championship appearance. The Bruins have won 10, including the 2014 title under Logan.

  • Saturday marks Columbine seventh championship game appearance. They have won five titles, most recently in 2011. In fact, Columbine has won each of the last five championship games they've been in.

  • They have two common opponents: Mullen and Pomona. Both teams beat Mullen, while Columbine lost to Pomona 34-33, and Cherry Creek beat Pomona twice, including 14-7 in last week's semifinals.

  • Both teams, along with the 4A finalists, were at Mile High on Tuesday for a tour and a press conference.
