There is an abundance of coverage around tonight's Bellevue-Lakes quarterfinal football game and I'm going to try and collect as much as possible to give a complete picture of how everyone sees the game around the state and even the nation.

The Interlake-Lynden game, which takes place on Saturday at 1pm, hasn't received quite as much hype, although the Saints are looking to make their first semi-final appearance since 1985 against the top-ranked Lions.

The Reporter will have updates on Twitter @bellevuepreps and look for our game story online after the game tonight.

The Reporter's coverage got started with a reader poll on the game and how pepole thought things would play out.

Lancers' head coach Dave Miller was kind enough to spend some time talking about the game. His thoughts? Bellevue is pretty good.

At the major daily papers concnered with the game, Mason Kelley of the Seattle Times had a piece on Devin Muprhy's return from injury and also a general take on the game, which pits what many believe are the top two teams in the state regardless of classification.

Doug Pacey of the Tacoma News Tribune spoke with three coaches who have dealt with the Wolverines in the past. Pacey also had a general primer for the game.

If you can't make it down to Harry E. Lang Stadium tonight, you can find the game on webcast.

National prep sports sources Rivals.com and Scout.com also offered takes on the game and are split on who they think will come out on top. Some see this as the national high school football game of the week.
