For starters, The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus also offers unbeatable print coverage before, during and after those games.

Saturday morning's paper will be chock full of state football coverage, too.

All of this weekend's high school football finals are available again on statewide TV. Comcast SportsNet Chicago is airing Friday's and Saturday's games live.
