Vacaville (8-3) vs. Folsom (11-0)

When: Today, 7 p.m.

Where: Folsom High

Series: Vacaville leads 6-4

Last meeting: 2011, Vacaville won 39-36 in the SJS D-I championship game

Last week: Vacaville defeated Rio Linda, 35-21; Folsom defeated Atwater, 59-12

Of note: After going 43 years between meetings, the two Bulldogs squads square off for the third straight year in the postseason. This year’s battle comes in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division II quarterfinals as did in 2010 when Folsom rolled to a section-record 75-0 halftime lead en route to a 75-6 victory in a driving rainstorm. Vacaville more than got revenge by earning a 39-36 victory in last year’s D-II title game. . . . Solano County’s Bulldogs, seeded ninth, are also underdogs this season as No. 1 Folsom comes in ranked 10th in the state, third in Northern California and  Division I North and second in the SJS behind Franklin of Elk Grove by Calhisports,com. Folsom enters the game with its third straight all-world quarterback in as many years. Jake Browning has completed 296 of 445 passes (66.5 percent) for 4,147 yards (377.0 per game) and 50 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, according to Maxpreps.com. He follows Dano Graves (3,702 yards and 62 TDs passing, 994 yards and 23 TDs rushing in 2010) and Tanner Trosin (5,185 yards and 49 TDs passing, 1,179 yards and 20 TDs rushing in 2011). Graves shredded Vacaville for 327 yards and five TDs through the air, 51 yards and three TDs in the ground in their 2010 playoff meeting. Trosin put up even bigger numbers last year, throwing for 407 yards and four TDs (with two interceptions) while rushing for 101 yards and a TD, though Vacaville prevailed. A difference this year is that Browning isn’t a running threat with just nine yards and one TD on the year. But Folsom more than gets it done, averaging 134.7 yards rushing to go with Browning’s 377 through the air and is averaging 46.7 points per game while giving up 20.0.The top Folsom rushing threats are Bailey Laolagi (520 yards, 8.0 per carry, 9 TDs) and Harry Lipnosky (599, 5.6,  5). But with six receivers having 20 catches or more, Folsom will come to pass. Browning’s favorite targets are Troy Knox ( 74 catches, 890 yards, 10 TDs), Lucas Owan (59, 1071, 10) and Rodney Ellison (41, 580, 4). . . . As its done since the dawn of time, Vacaville, which is averaging 39.0 points per game while giving up 24.8, will try to control things with the run. It’s top rushing threats are Curtis Goins (1,132 yards, 8.1 per carry,  11 TDs), David Mewborn (857, 14.1, 10) and Jacob Te’o (507, 8.6, 9). QB Nic Ardave has been an effect counter, completing 65 of 128 passes for 1,074 yards and 14 TDs with 8 interceptions. Vacaville’s top receivers are Goins (20 catches, 319 yards, 3 TDs) and Tyler Cummins (18, 315, 2). . . . Folsom won every game by a double-digit margin with its closest game a 31-20 victory over San Ramon Valley. Its next closest game was a  50-38 win over Deer Valley, two weeks before the Wolverines blitzed Vacaville 55-35. Their other common foe was Oak Ridge, which fell to Folsom 49-21 after earlier edging Vacaville 24-21.

If you go: Take Interstate 80 to Sacramento and Highway 50 east to Folsom. Take the Prairie City Road exit and go north. The school is on the right at 1655 Iron Point Road.

Prediction:  Folsom 55, Vacaville 24

Last week’s prediction record: 2-0; Season record: 53-15
