Saturday's matchup between Lovett (12-2) and Buford (14-0) will be the second meeting between the two this season.
And although the first contest - a game in which the Wolves earned one of their six shutouts on the season - carried its own importance, there's no doubt that this is the one that will have everyone talking with the 2A championship on the line.
Lovett's path to the championship game went through victories against Macon County, Thomasvile and Cook and if the Lions want to snap a three-game losing streak to Buford they will have to follow that same formula.
Led by an offense that averages 28.1 points per game, Lovett must find a way to combat the talented Wolves defense that allows just over four.
As for Buford, only Charlton County has provided much of an obstacle this postseason. Despite slipping by them in the second round by seven, the Wolves have still managed to outscore their playoff opponents 110-14.
For the year, Buford averages 45.1 points per game.
