14 teams will head to Vermillion for the annual South Dakota high school football state championships. Here are this year's matchups.

Class 11AAA will feature a rematch from last year as Harrisburg and Brandon Valley will meet again. The Tigers defeated Lincoln 17-10, while Brandon Valley pulled away from O'Gorman in a 28-20 victory.

Last year's scheduled game between Tea Area and Pierre had a lot of hype behind it, but it never happened due to COVID-19. Fast forward one year later and the two teams will finally meet and it will be for a state championship. Tea Area held off a late run from Yankton to punch their ticket to the dome. Pierre beat Aberdeen Central 28-21.
