I don't think the results against common opponents matters all that much. I think it's all how teams matchup, and, for Sycamore, St. X is a much better matchup than Colerain. That said, this isn't last year. I think this Sycamore team is maybe a hair worse than last year's team while I think this St. X team is significantly better than last year's team. Despite the good matchup for Sycamore, I think it means X should win by 10-20 points. However, I think a game going down to the wire or a St. X blowout win are just as likely.
