Dowling 44 Xavier 13 Big plays, more by Dowling. I am impressed with Dowling passing the ball which has set-up all of Dowling scores. With the exception of Xavier QB going 75yds. for a score, the game is not that close. Xavier did block the extra point.
Dowling is putting on a Passing Clinic,

Interception with about 1 minute left in the 2nd quarter seems like it might be the end of the Xavier rally. I think Dowling's win probability is probably in the +95% range now up, from pregame 89%.
If Xavier wins, it will be the greatest comeback in decades.
Experts out there: when has a team come back from down 17 to win a championship?

Holy crap. Dowling curb stomping the saints...very surprised

Objectively, outside of player analysis, this was the clue:
QB Dowling...Drew Tate called and wants his mojo back....Stud QB

That's a 14-point comeback -- definitely notable.

Qued, I think on the east side of the state it is called throttle stomping?!

Whatever you call it that was a well oiled machine in Dowling...congrats to my former BV teammate coach Wilson and the Dowling team

Knew the Xavier offense wasn't much, but really was impressed with their defense against Bett and hearing how they did during the year. Thought if it was a blowout it would be more like 24-3. Dowling and Valley are just so good, year in and year out, and sure Ankeny Centennial will be back there in a year or two.

Dowling was totally impressive, because Xavier is such a solid team, and they just whacked Bettendorf. I hope the Iowa Hawkeyes can get QB Boyle someday. He's just a junior, isn't he? What was he, 19-21 passing or something like that. I remember when he was a freshman; everybody was saying how good he is going to be, and they were right.
Now...on to basketball.

After watching both the 3A and the 4A games, I would like to see a Heelan vs Dowling game with this years teams.
