The 38th Annual WIAA Football State Championship Finals will be held this Thursday and Friday at Camp Randall Stadium on the campus of the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Here’s a preview of the Division 4 game on Thursday….

7 p.m. Winneconne (8-5) vs. Platteville (9-4)

On the 30th anniversary of winning the Division 4 championship in 1983, Platteville returns to the State final for the second time. The Hillmen’s advance to the title game following a 22-15 win over Roncalli at Level 4. They were seeded third in their grouping following a 5-4 regular-season mark and tying for third place in the Southwest Wisconsin Conference with a 4-4 record. Two of their losses this season have come against Lancaster, which is playing in the Division 5 championship game. The Hillmen’s run in the playoffs has come by virtue of a solid defense that has allowed just 9.5 points per game in the post-season. Winneconne is making its first-ever appearance in the title game. The Wolves’ seemingly improbable run to the title game became reality with a 16-14 win over defending champion Somerset at Level 4. The Wolves were seeded sixth in their grouping to begin the tournament after placing fifth in the Eastern Valley Conference with a 4-4 record and a 4-5 record overall. Three of the teams finishing ahead of them in the standings qualified and won at least one playoff game in Division 3.

All of the championship games will be televised live on Fox Sports Wisconsin.
