Bishop Diego, Dos Pueblos Hit Road for CIF Football Title Games

The dates have been set for the CIF-Southern Section football championships.

Top-seeded Bishop Diego (12-1) will play Golden Valley High (6-5) at Canyon High in Canyon Country on Friday, Dec. 1 in the Division 6 title game.

In a battle of 12-1 teams, No. 2 seed Dos Pueblos travels to fourth-seeded Quartz Hill on Saturday, Dec. 2 for the Division 10 Championship.

And, in the North County, Santa Maria (7-4) hosts No. 3 Big Bear (12-1) in the Division 12 Final.

On the South Coast, this marks the first time since 1989 that two 11-man football teams are playing in CIF Championship games in the same season. That year, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria both won titles.

Bishop Diego and Dos Pueblos are both seeking their first football championship. They've both been CIF runners-up: DP in 2001 and Bishop Diego in 2007.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
